29 October 2020 | Implementing Holistic Impact Analysis- Learnings of early adopters, Tool Updates and New User Guide
In April 2020 UNEP FI 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.
After six months of 6 months implementation by practitioners, UNEP FI releases a detailed user Guide as well as the first updates to its in-built country needs assessment framework, one of several unique in-built resources of the Tools.
So what’s new?
- We are releasing a detailed Guide to Holistic Impact Analysis aimed at supporting users of the Portfolio Impact Analysis Tool for Banks;
- We have made exciting updates to the Tools’ in-built country needs assessment framework, one of several unique in-built resources of the Tools;
- And we are busily preparing new features as well as additional holistic impact analysis tools to be released in 2021.
