Earlier Editions of Breakfast Inspiration Sessions

The Biodiversity Breakfast Inspiration Session sparked discussions on the critical need for conservation efforts and addressed complexities of impact management. Key findings suggested that $8.4 trillion in investments are needed by 2050 to finance solutions to fight climate change, loss of nature, and land degradation. Our recommendation is that you start investing for positive impact now! Do not wait for the perfect indicator, otherwise you’ll be too late and will not be able to keep up with upcoming regulations.

The Water Breakfast Inspiration Session: The essence of life itself, water emerged as a central theme in our exploration of sustainable investments. Impact Institute presented a real-life case of a water impact project and its impact throughout the value chain. From discussions on water resilience strategies to the urgent call for investments in clean water solutions, participants were reminded of the pivotal role of water in driving positive social and environmental outcomes.

Thirsty for positive impact? We have methodologies, tools, and data to assess the positive and negative impacts of all the major energy technologies, sources and countries and organisations. We do so by using our in-house software, data, and education solutions. We build transparent and comprehensive impact reports, and help navigate all SFDR, CSRD, CSDDD, PAI Proxy Data reporting.  

The Energy Transition Breakfast Inspiration Session: Amidst the global shift towards renewable energy, our Energy Transition session provided a roadmap for navigating this dynamic market. Discussions centered on climate-resilient infrastructure and financing strategies for clean energy projects. With our holistic impact approach, Impact Institute underscored that investors must be careful not to displace the problems onto other geographical areas or other externalities such as raw material mining or breaches of human rights. Ensuring a just transition is key. Furthermore, while investments in the Energy Transition globally can help realise SDGs – it is important to consider relationships with all value chain partners. Investments in green energy are only as green as their value chains.  

Moving towards a resilient and responsible energy system within planetary boundaries is one of the biggest opportunities for this decade. At Impact Institute we have 10+ years of experience as a trusted advisor for the biggest energy infrastructure companies in The Netherlands. We provide solutions for impact reporting, decision-making and impact strategy.
