With our expertise on impact management developed since 2004 alongside mission-led organisations, IFG can support you as a profit with purpose organisation to demonstrate and improve your societal performance. From the measurement and management of your positive impact, to the mitigation of your unintended negative impact, we cover all aspects of impact integration at the strategic, operational and communication levels. We work with organisations at various stages of their impact management journey, from those that do not have any set strategy or data yet, to others at an advanced stage and looking for additional support.
What We Offer
Our approach is based on our best practice publications The Good Analyst and The Good Investor, and our participation in sector initiatives for sharing and building up knowledge, such as the Impact Management Project. We focus on building your capacity and skills, and helping you implement practical solutions that are a fit for your organisation’s available resource and time.
We will help you embed impact measurement practices at the centre of your organisation, to ensure impact management becomes part of your core strategy planning and enable you to grow your impact every year.
