The Positive Impact Initiative engages both, finance sector practitioners from the UNEP FI Membership, as well as representatives from a wider group of stakeholders in the public and private sectors.


Impact Analysis Working Groups

Building on the recent release of the PII Impact Analysis Tools, here are the new Working Groups that will be kicking-off soon (commencing May 2020):

  • Corporate impact: open to banks, investors, corporates and service providers.
  • Bank portfolios: UNEP FI banking members only
  • Real estate: real estate investors, property developers

Email us if you would like to get involved with our Working Groups.


Open Review Process

As part of its work on facilitating holistic impact analysis, the PII has started a set of ‘impact mappings’, considering the positive and negative associations between sectors (e.g. car manufacturing) and impact areas (e.g. resource efficiency), as well as the level of country needs vis a vis impact areas (e.g. Morocco and employment).

The mappings are an integral part of the PII Impact Analysis Tools. The mappings can also be used independently of the PII tools, as input to other processes, methodologies and tools.

In order to ensure that the mappings are of maximum accuracy and hence value, an open review and co-creation process is now available on an on-going basis.

Impact Research & Development (R&D) Programme

There are multiple R&D needs for the transition to an impact-based economy and the mainstreaming of impact-based business and financing models. The Impact R&D Programme attempts to draw the landscape of these needs and constitutes an open invitation to share information, work collaboratively and co-create what’s missing.
