Methodology & Sources
The impak SDG Alignment (iSA) offers an assessment of a company’s positive and negative contributions to the SDGs. Based on a double materiality approach, it aligns with several materiality standards, including the GRI, SASB, and IFC. The iSA includes an analysis of a company’s mitigation strategy, affected stakeholders and an overview of its positive contributions to the 169 SDG targets. The overall alignment generates a company-tailored Potential Impact Indicator. The iSA serves as the foundation for a comprehensive Impact Assessment.
The sources used for an iSA are exclusively collected from publicly available documents, including corporate disclosures (i.e., Sustainability Reports, EU Taxonomy, TCFD disclosures), and corporate websites. To collect information from private companies, impak has developed the impak Data Collection Platform (iDCP), which provides an interactive online questionnaire where companies can themselves fill in the relevant information to perform an analysis.
