Impact measurement is, therefore, of specific strategic significance to financial institutions. Firstly, measuring impact helps contribute more effectively to societal challenges. Secondly, understanding impact allows financial institutions to proactively manage their risks through anticipating and preparing for future (financially) material topics. Thirdly, Impact valuation allows organisations to create and execute a comprehensive strategy where trade-offs can be compared and managed in terms of risk, return and impacts. Lastly, it helps to communicate credibly about value creation and build trust from stakeholders and society.
