Our Approach to Impact Management
In 2018, the Foundation revamped how we measure impact. After an extensive review of the emerging best practices, we subscribe to the Impact Management Project principles – the global consensus on how to measure, compare and report ESG risks and positive impact – and view impact as a management strategy. Just as the broader field of impact management is evolving, we undertake continuous improvement to how we define, measure and apply the impact of our work.
