    What Are the Best Practices for Impact Classification and Verification?

    Can impact classification create better accountability?

    Impact Investing is a journey. Understanding where you are and where you want to go requires consistent Impact Classification and data.

    Many asset owners are not quite ready to define how to engage with the field and thereby underestimate their role in creating the demand for better data and transparency. Claudia Coppenolle from IMP + ACT Alliance will use impact classification examples to demonstrate better accountability between asset owners, asset managers, and advisors.

    Topics for discussion:

    1) Demand more information about how their managers integrate IMM in the investment process.

    2) Ask for more cohesive validation and verification.

    3) Bring confidence and transparency between asset owners, asset managers, and advisors.

    are very honored to invite Claudia Coppenolle, Co-Founder & CEO at IMP+ACT Alliance / Impact Classification System (ICS) / Banking Intrapreneur turned Entrepreneur / Sustainable Investing Advisor. Join SoPact and IMP+ACT Alliance for an insightful conversation!

    Social Innovation Summit 2021

    The Social Innovation Summit is an annual event that represents a global convening of black swans and wayward thinkers. Where most bring together luminaries to explore the next big idea, we bring together those hungry not just to talk about the next big thing, but to build it.

    Social Innovation Summit has always prided ourselves on being a community of people who are motivated to take action. In this time of crisis, our network can rise to the occasion and we can serve as the virtual convening place where the most important conversations take place for vital partnerships to be quickly developed and quickly engaged.
