UNEP FI members, members of sister organizations and external stakeholders work together to develop and test tools for holistic impact analysis on a by-interest basis. The Positive Impact Initiative offers a unique opportunity to share experience with and learn from other financial institutions and business partners to drive best practice, harmonization and improved guidance.

2019 Working Groups:

  • Impact Frameworks for corporate finance and investments with unspecified use of funds: financial institutions and relevant stakeholders test the PI Model Framework and compare approaches to impact analysis on corporates with a goal to drive harmonization, refine the Model and complement it with case studies.
  • Identifying significant impacts in bank portfolios: a joint Working Group with UNEP FI’s Principles for Responsible Banking, banks build on the PI Model Frameworks & Impact Radar to develop a tool that will help them identify significant impact areas and to strategise and set targets accordingly.
