Impact (Positive)

Measures the positive impact that the asset is expected to generate in areas such as environmental sustainability, social justice, and economic development.

To evaluate this key category, the following category groups are considered:

  • Which are the primary SDGs impacted? This category assesses what United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) the asset is expected to contribute to. The SDGs include 17 goals such as no poverty, zero hunger, good health and well-being, quality education, clean water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, decent work and economic growth, industry, innovation and infrastructure, reduced inequalities, sustainable cities and communities, responsible consumption and production, climate action, life below water, life on land, peace, justice and strong institutions, and partnerships for the goals.
  • Which are the Primary IRIS Impact Categories? This category assesses what Impact Management Project (IMP) IRIS impact categories the asset is expected to contribute to. The IRIS impact categories are a set of standardized metrics and definitions used to measure and track impact across different sectors and geographies.
  • Target Beneficiaries: This category assesses who are the specific groups of people or communities that will benefit from the asset's positive impact.
Based on the answers to these questions, the asset is assigned a score for the Impact (Positive) parameter, which reflects the extent and specificity of the positive impact it is expected to generate.
