About this event

We are pleased to offer to our community an opportunity to learn more about an impact measurement solution called B Analytics. B Analytics can be used to do custom impact data collection, or can be used to do a standard impact evaluation called the B Impact Assessment (learn more about B Analytics from the attached overview). Companies and funds that complete the B Impact Assessment can obtain an impact rating called GIIRS – the Global Impact Investing Rating System – that measures their positive impact performance.The webinar will be held on Thursday, September 26th at 9am Singapore. During the webinar, we’ll highlight some of the impact measurement tools and open up the discussion for your questions about impact measurement and the B Impact Assessment.
