Implementing Holistic Impact Analysis- Learnings of Early Adopters, Tool Updates and New User Guide

Join us on Thursday 29th October to listen to the learnings of early adopters of UNEP FI’s unique Portfolio Impact Analysis Tool for Banks, find out about the first tool updates and discover the brand new Guide to Holistic Impact Analysis.

In April 2020 Finance UNEP Initiative launched two ground-breaking tools: the Portfolio Impact Analysis Tool for Banks and the Corporate Impact Analysis Tool. The Tools’ unique holistic impact analysis methodology enables financial institutions to understand the actual and potential positive and negative impacts associated with their business across the SDG spectrum of environmental, social and economic issues. The Portfolio Tool enables a top-down portfolio level analysis for banks, in particular signatories to the Principles for Responsible Banking (PRB), while the Corporate Tool enables a bottom-up review of financial institutions’ main and systemically important clients.

So what’s new?

After six months of 6 months of implementation by practitioners….

  • Finance UNEP Initiative is releasing a detailed Guide to Holistic Impact Analysis aimed at supporting users of the Portfolio Impact Analysis Tool for Banks;
  • They have made exciting updates to the Tools’ in-built country needs assessment framework, one of several unique in-built resources of the Tools;
  • And they are busily preparing new features as well as additional holistic impact analysis tools to be released in 2021.

Join us on 29th October for an interactive walk-through of the tool, featuring the experiences and learnings of the Tools’ early users.
