This interactive GSG webinar will discuss recently published work from the Impact-Weighted Accounts Initiative (IWAI) at Harvard Business School. The IWAI has released a methodology that measures an organization’s environmental, employment, and product impact in monetary terms. Transparent measurement of impact included alongside a company’s financial statements will spur a strategic focus on outcomes.
Recent articles published in the Financial Times and Harvard Business Review by Sir Ronald Cohen and Harvard Business School professor George Serafeim have sparked interest from corporates and investors in wanting to know how to begin measuring and accounting for impact within their organizations.
In addition to delving into the IWAI impact methodologies, the webinar will include testimonials from organizations already working with IWAI to measure their organizational impact and a roadmap of the next 18 months of work for the IWAI.
Following this webinar, interested organizations will be invited to join a cohort of enterprises piloting the IWAI methodology. Through a close partnership with the IWAI team, pilot organizations will be empowered to create and report monetized impact values for their organization.
