Download the latest agenda

Businesses, investors, governments and consumers increasingly recognise that the existing economic model is no longer acting in society’s best long-term interests. Significant shifts in how businesses operate are required to avert some potentially catastrophic outcomes. One of the most exciting and rapidly evolving shifts is the transition from basic ‘sustainability’ practices of minimising impacts to having a positive impact. Companies and financial institutions are increasingly aiming to achieve this through measuring and valuing their impacts and setting accompanying net zero and net positive targets.

Why attend?

  • An exceptional opportunity to hear from leading experts in impact measurement, valuation and target setting (e.g. net zero, net gain, net positive) in a business context
  • Discover best practice from front-runner companies and financial institutions evaluating and demonstrating the value they create for society
  • Unparalleled insights and networking on the topic, catering for beginners to experienced practitioners pushing the boundaries

The conference will bring together different communities involved in all aspects of net impact approaches to:

  • Share the latest initiatives and approaches
  • Share and debate best practice
  • Provide case studies from leading organisations on measuring and valuing impacts and setting associated net positive targets
  • Help drive the movement forwards by dealing with key issues
  • Facilitate collaboration and networking between the many groups involved

The content will cover all forms of approaches that identify, measure, value and compare environmental, social and economic impacts. The main focus is on a business context, building upon building upon previous years’outcomes and recommendations. Key themes this year include:

  • Getting started and establishing targets
  • Making and building the business case
  • The role of sustainable finance and other incentives in furthering uptake
  • Net biodiversity and net environmental gain
  • Regenerative agriculture
  • Why and how to conduct Integrated Profit and Loss Accounts
  • The Human and Social Capital Protocol
  • Links with Sustainable Finance, SDGs, Science Based Targets and the Circular Economy
  • Best practice integrated environmental and social impact P&Ls and Balance Sheets
