Join us for a discussion on the Joint Impact Model to learn how it quantifies GHG emissions for portfolios in developing countries

About this event

There is a growing need for impact investors to contribute towards convergence around a globally accepted system for impact reporting. Harmonization will not only provide clarity on the impact the private sector is having on the SDGs in emerging markets, but also help unlock finance and mobilize action to the places that need it most. It will assist the just transition toward a climate-neutral economy and help address the socio-economic impact of the transition.

Most financial institutions in developing countries are not yet capable of tracking and quantifying impact in a standardized way, while they contribute substantially to the world’s greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and the domestic financial sector.

The Joint Impact Model (JIM) is an industry-led initiative which provides the means to quantify impact aligned with industry standards, in turn, contributing to impact harmonization for the financial sector in developing countries. The JIM is a web-based tool which allows users to calculate their impact across three key metrics: greenhouse gas emissions, jobs supported and contribution to GDP. Using input data such as revenue and power production from investment portfolios, the JIM enables users to estimate financial flows through the economy and its resulting economic, social and environmental impact. These results can be used to measure and report on the contribution of individual financial institutions to the Paris Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

During this webinar we will dive deeper into the methodology of the model, have user institutions share their experiences in using the JIM, and leave some room for Q&A.
