Impact Measurement and Management (IMM) is a cornerstone of impact investing. As impact funds (and those that invest in them) target specific impact and financial returns, they must integrate robust practices to generate and use data to advance the intended social and environmental impacts from these investments. In practice this is often challenging, given the plethora of approaches, frameworks and tools available, and the challenges of time, cost, and capacity.

This four-day workshop will provide a detailed overview of the key stages and decisions of developing an impact thesis, measurement approach and management strategy for an impact investment fund. We will explore topics such as impact due diligence, indicator selection, portfolio-level approaches, and impact reporting. Participants will engage with practical case study examples and tools to explore and apply the critical facets of IMM for impact investing.

  • Develop a sophisticated understanding of the impact measurement ecosystem globally
  • Learn about how to develop an impact measurement strategy for your impact investing portfolio
