Impact Tip: Positive Impact

In this Impact Tip, we focus on the concept of positive impacts and therefore, we turn our attention to what “impact” really means.

Why? Because, like it or not, every organisation generates positive and negative impacts through its business activities. We believe that the economic agents of the future will start incorporating the assessment of companies’ positive impacts and the mitigation of the negative ones. So it’s best we get ahead of the curve and prepare for this eventuality.

Reducing negative impacts is simply not sufficient to truly consider a +1.5 degree Celsius scenario and achieve the 17 UN’s SDGs. In order to benefit vulnerable communities and ecosystems, positive impacts have to be properly measured and managed.

Watch and hear what our Senior Impact Analyst, Melissa Paris St-Amour, has to say on the subject.
