AVPN Global Conference 2023 | 20 - 22 June 2023



Impact Management Project

The Impact Management Project (IMP) is an unprecedented opportunity to reach consensus on how we measure and therefore manage impact.

AVPN is a Strategic Partner of the IMP


The Impact Management Project (IMP) is a forum for building global consensus on how to measure, report, compare and improve impact performance.

The IMP convenes a Practitioner Community of over 2,000 organisations to debate and find consensus on good impact measurement and management, and share best practices.

It also facilitates the IMP Structured Network – an unprecedented collaboration of organisations that, through their specific and complementary expertise, are coordinating efforts to provide complete standards for impact measurement, management and reporting.

Measure Impact

The five dimensions to measure impact

After a series of consultations with its Practitioner Community, the IMP reached consensus that impact can be deconstructed into five dimensions: What, Who, How Much, Contribution and Risk.

Collecting data for each dimension enables enterprises, and their investors, to assess and manage their impact in a consistent and comparable manner, and then set goals against one or more dimensions to improve their impact.



What outcome(s) do business activities drive? How important are these outcomes to the people (or planet) experiencing them?



Who experiences the outcome? How underserved are the stakeholders in relation to the outcome?


How Much

How much of the outcome occurs across scale, depth, and duration?



What is the enterprise’s contribution to what would likely happen anyway? What is the investor’s contribution that enables the enterprises they invest in to have an impact?



What is the risk to people and planet that impact does not occur as expected?


The IMP is supported by a diverse group of funders

The IMP is supported by a diverse group of funders and is shaped by the input of more than 2,000 organisations and practitioners from across the global investment value chain, including the following AVPN members:
