Screening for impact: 5 dimensions of impact of the IMP

Course modules

The course is structured around 3 chapters and 9 lessons on how to screen the ESG and impact performance or potential of organisations.

ESG/impact screening is very in vogue – little do we know though as to why it should be an economic imperative before we make any investment decisions. This primer explores how core impact of a business model and ESG factors drive value creation and long-term profitability of an organisation. We will look at the link between the two, the types of screening that are commonly used (exclusionary and positive screening, materiality assessment) as well as the limits and the risk one should be aware of undertaking this exercise.

The Impact Management Project (IMP) is an international initiative to build global consensus on measuring, assessing and reporting impacts. The IMP put forward 5 dimensions of impact. In this Chapter you will learn how to perform a screening of an investment opportunity against the 5 dimensions of impact and evaluate whether it fits within a funds' investment mandate. Using a case study, we will put theory into practice and discuss the advantages and drawbacks of this method.

This chapter explores how to measure and manage ESG and impact factors to pick assets and drive value throughout the holding period.  We will focus on how to use impact due diligence insights to feed into the 100 day plan post investment, and future value creation strategy in collaboration with management teams.

The link between the 5 dimensions and investor asset classes

Impact Management Project 5 dimensions of Impact: classifying an enterprise's impacts into A, B or C

Investors also set goals about the contribution they want to make to enable enterprises they invest in to have an impact. Investors can use a range of strategies to contribute to impact, often in combination.
They can:

  • Signal that measurable impact matters: A commitment to factoring in the impact an enterprise has, such that – if all investors did the same – it would lead to a ‘pricing in’ of social and environmental effects by the capital markets. 
  • Engage actively: Investors can use expertise, networks and influence to improve the environmental/societal performance of businesses.
  • Grow new or undersupplied capital markets, by anchoring or participating in new or previously overlooked opportunities.
  • Provide flexible capital, by recognizing that certain types of enterprises do require acceptance of lower risk-adjusted financial return to generate certain kinds of impact.
