Our customised services help clients understand, enhance and communicate their ESG and impact performance with integrity and confidence.

We combine the use of quantitative and qualitative data with a focus on understanding real world outcomes and taking end-user and stakeholder perspectives into account.

Impact Measurement & Management Systems

We support clients in developing practical ESG and impact measurement and management (IMM) systems that align with their business strategy and industry frameworks such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Impact Management Project, GIIN's IRIS+ system and the IFC Operating Principles for Impact Management.

Our IMM systems development help clients define their impact objectives and integrate impact considerations into their business strategy and decision-making. We develop robust ESG and impact reporting frameworks, including metrics and data collection systems that are used to measure and manage sustainable social and environmental value creation over time.

Impact Due Diligence

We conduct independent due diligence to assess transactions' social impact opportunities and risks. Our reports provide evidence-based insight into the likelihood of clients achieving their impact objectives, while also highlighting ways of enhancing impact creation and avoiding negative impacts.

Impact Assessment and Reporting

We provide a considered and independent opinion on the positive and negative impacts of clients' activities. We take a mixed methods approach that combines both qualitative and quantitative data.

Our impact reporting ranges from in-depth reporting for clients focused on a single challenge (tackling homelessness, for example) to analysing and reporting on the impact of multi-sector global portfolios.

Impact Assurance and Verification

We work with clients to review and develop their approach to ESG integration and to impact measurement and management in light of industry best practice and standards. Our independent impact assurance methodology enables verification of alignment with the UNDP SDG Impact Standards and IFC Operating Principles for Impact Management.

Outcomes Measurement

We help clients understand their stakeholders' lived experiences. Based on our Insightable tool, which replaces costly and time-consuming surveys, our lean and fast approach to outcomes measurement lets people articulate change in their own words, while allowing analysis and benchmarking based on quantitative trends.
