About this talk

This webinar helps financial institutions understand how to apply a holistic positive impact lens to portfolios or products for corporates with unspecified use of proceed via a recently released Model Framework. This Framework serves as a basis for a new Working Group on holistic impact analysis, which brings together financial institutions to test the framework with real cases and share learnings. The Model Frameworks are the tools through which the PI Principles are interpreted and implemented. They are developed by the PI Initiative to guide the delivery of Positive Impact financial products and for ongoing portfolio monitoring. Financial institutions can use them to develop or adapt their own frameworks. Auditors, analysts and other stakeholders can use them to verify or provide opinions on the PI nature of financial products.
