Resources and examples

Access practical tools and templates for impact management

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.

If you would like to submit content for this page, please complete this short form to initiate the process. Note that we accept:

  • Reports and case studies that demonstrate the integration of the IMP norms into an enterprise or investor’s impact measurement and management practice
  • Open source guidelines that enable organisations to better understand their impacts
  • Academic papers or research articles that aim to advance progress in the area of ESG and impact measurement, management and disclosure
  • Databases of research and evaluations around impact measurement and management, that promote best practice and transparency in reporting data.
