Today organizations across the spectrum are not harnessing the skills, resources, and talents of their teams. The inefficient reporting towards SGDs brings practitioners to endless efforts to localize the goals and understand their contribution.
Without end-to-end impact management, investments are often misaligned and not aggregate towards portfolio maximized impact, meaning the impact ecosystem is broken. The misalignment of the incentives, often financial leave the organizations focused on the short term, without enough opportunity to communicate their impact evidence.
More often than not, funders and organizations are left with "impact" washing as a means to share their contribution.
Universal impact reporting is required for increased trust between the stakeholders across the spectrum of capital to facilitate transactions. Disclosing actual impact performance data to investors and investees, donors and grantees with Impact Scorecard, in a manner as comparable as possible, supports decision-making key objectives and results.
Impact Scorecard effectively brings us closer to the desired outcomes and moves rapidly toward an effective approach to the SDGs through:
Evidence and impact data is not transparent without standardization and consensus in terms of reporting. The investment thesis is not always disclosed nor the strategies used to achieve the goals.
Activities and outcomes are reported ad hoc and disable funders from thorough and deep insights on the impact performance of their investments.
Reports show a high level of idiosyncrasy in narrative and
language aka. “Snowflake syndrome” and a shared language is missing and lacks a global standard for reporting.
According to GIIN, impact investors commit to using shared conventions, approaches, and standards for describing impact goals, strategies, and performance. Impact Cloud® helps to bring these together through standardized language - from impact thesis to impact reporting.
By sharing positive and negative outcomes in Impact Report, users are sharing learnings, evidence, or data aligned with Sustainable Development Goals and/or with Impact Management Project. This enables asset managers and asset owners for an improved comparison and benchmarking, identifying opportunities to share best practices across portfolios.
The lack of a standardized language leaves all players across the spectrum to report their impact the way they know, or the way they can.
Many times Investment managers or Foundations are left with a set of different reports from their portfolio. This inefficiency brings increased difficulties for consolidated analysis at portfolio level and leaves space for underreporting of impact evidences.
On the other hand, the lack of best practices in impact reporting levels the game at the bottom provided that much information available online is not always representative of the different stakeholders and or the best way to report impact and the diversified contributions enterprises and investors may bring to the people and planet.
Organizations, particularly NGOs and social ventures struggle with resources, human and financial and Impact reporting is often left unattended.
Impact Cloud® allows users to leverage on a set of templates for impact reporting, so that organizations can save time and generate own reporting including impact goals and analytics both financial and impact evidence. By saving charts from impact insights or importing charts to Impact Cloud®, users can build a customized report based on the template that better meets their goals in pursuit of social impact and/or financial outcomes.
