A curated list of impact management resources

As part of its consensus-building efforts for good impact measurement and management, the IMP has developed practical guidance, partnered with organisations to develop case studies, and championed others whose measurement and management approach demonstrates the norms agreed through the IMP. This page of resources and examples has been developed to support enterprises and investors working to better understand their impacts on people and the planet.
