The Portfolio Impact Analysis Tool for Banks is designed to guide banks through an impact analysis of their portfolios. Developed jointly with signatories of the Principles for Responsible Banking and UNEP FI Member Banks, the Tool helps banks analyze the impacts associated with their portfolios. The analysis will enable banks to set targets where it matters in order to drive their contribution to society’s goals, as required by the Principles for Responsible Banking.
The Investment Portfolio Impact Analysis Tool was developed to enable financial institutions to holistically identify and assess the impacts associated with their investment portfolios. It requires users to input data about the nature, content and context of their portfolios. A set of in-built impact mappings is then combined with this data to help users identify the most significant impact areas of the portfolio and to reflect on their current impact performance, thus setting the basis for strategy development and target-setting.
The Real Estate Impact Analysis Tool was developed to enable financial institutions to holistically identify and assess the impacts associated with real estate investments and portfolios. There are multiple use cases for this kind of analysis, including: decision-making and due diligence in the context of asset acquisition; fund/portfolio review and management; impact target-setting as well as impact & SDG reporting.
The Corporate Impact Analysis Tool helps banks and investors gain a cross-cutting view of the impact status and possibilities of their clients and investee companies following UNEP FI’s unique holistic impact approach. The Tool is intended to help users manage their portfolios, meet their impact targets, and ultimately become more effective at managing impact-related risks and opportunities in close collaboration with their clients and investee companies.
