Net Impact Approaches: Bringing the Strands Together

by Christin VanZant last modified Apr 13, 2017 02:17 PM
We’d like to draw to your attention a one-day conference, Wednesday 24th May, in Central London, on ‘Net Impact Approaches’ that BBOP and Forest Trends are pleased to be involved in as Conference Affiliates. As you can see from the information below, it is a well supported event with an interesting range of organisations speaking. The aim of the event is to bring together the different communities involved in Net Impact Approaches to share and learn from each other. The term encompasses approaches that involve measuring and comparing social and environmental impacts - including biodiversity - in a business context, sometimes linked to targets such as net gain/net positive. In particular the event will cover: Developing a company business case for action. Best practice techniques and tools, and lessons learned for measuring, valuing and comparing impacts. Investigating and resolving key challenges (technical and other). Determining how best action can be scaled up and how you can help.

BBOP Director Kerry ten Kate will be presenting, and also supporting a subsequent break-out session on biodiversity led by IUCN on key challenges and solutions for net impact assessments.      

The line-up of speakers and Agenda suggest it should be an excellent event for practitioners as well as for those wanting to learn more about this rapidly evolving topic.  It will be an good opportunity to liaise more closely with social impact assessment colleagues, too.   

Collaboration on the conference will help us advance some of the issues that BBOP members asked us to address when the Advisory Group last met in London in November 2016, such as taking stock of the wealth of initiatives in related areas, linking to corporate natural capital accounting, etc.  Issues related to measuring and valuing biodiversity will be covered throughout the day, as will linkages with related and broader environmental and social topics, such as:

  • Net Positive / Net Gain
  • No Net Loss / Net Zero
  • Integrated Profit & Loss Accounts / Total Contribution
  • Environmental & Social Profit & Loss Accounts
  • Integrated reporting
  • Creating Shared Value
  • Impact Investing
  • Use of SROI, CBA, NPV, offsetting etc.   

Over 20 thought-leaders will present their views and experience, including speakers from most of the supporting organisations as well as leading experts from Kering, LafargeHolcim, Nestlé, ASN Bank, CREM, BASF, ICAEW, Balfour Beatty, IIRC, PwC and The Crown Estate.

Registration costs just £295 (+VAT) until 24th April.
