Implementing Holistic Impact Analysis: Early Adopters, Updates & Guidance (PM)

Presented by

UNEP FI | Positive Impact Initiative

About this talk

In April 2020 UNEP FI launched two ground-breaking tools: the Bank Portfolio Impact Analysis Tool and the Corporate Impact Analysis Tool. The Tools’ unique holistic methodology enable banks to understand the actual and potential positive and negative impacts associated with their business across the spectrum of environmental, social and economic issues. While the Portfolio Tool enables a top-down portfolio level analysis, the Corporate Tool enables a bottom-up review of financial institution’s main and systemically important clients. After six months of 6 months implementation by practitioners, UNEP FI releases a detailed User Manual as well as the first updates to its in-built country needs assessment framework, one of several unique in-built resources of the Tools. Join us on 29th October for an interactive walk-through of the tool, featuring the experiences and learnings of the Tools’ early users. Speakers: Simon Stücheli, Sustainability Affairs, Credit Suisse Niklas Rydberg, Business Areas Lead, Group Sustainable Finance, Nordea Mauricio Burbano, Produbanco Mandeep Sidhu, Consultant, Partnerships - Community Investment, Vancity Careen Abb, Programme Lead, Positive Impact Finance, UNEP FI Dr Penny Apostolaki, VP, Sustainability and ESG, Barclays

United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) is a partnership between United Nations Environment and the global financial sector created in the wake of the 1992 Earth Summit with a mission to promote sustainable finance. More than 240 financial institutions, including banks, insurers, and investors, work with UN Environment to understand today’s environmental, social and governance challenges, why they matter to finance, and how to actively participate in addressing them. UNEP FI’s work also includes a strong focus on policy – by facilitating country-level dialogues between finance practitioners, supervisors, regulators and policy-makers, and, at the international level, by promoting financial sector involvement in processes such as the global climate negotiations.
