Impact measurement and management

Impact measurement and management (IMM) is critical to understanding whether an organisation is progressing towards its goals. We use recognised frameworks and tools to help clients:

  • Develop sustainability-related metrics and targets
  • Develop sustainability-related measurement, monitoring, and knowledge management systems 

We also help clients develop and refine their impact strategy through Theory of Change, data analytics, and impact learning.

Non-financial assurance

KPMG IMPACT’s assurance services provide clients and their stakeholders with confidence in the quality of externally-reported, non-financial disclosures. We help:

  • Embed good reporting practices
  • Drive internal performance improvements
  • Provide comfort over the effectiveness of internal controls, risk management processes, compliance with reporting standards and frameworks, and the appropriateness of key performance indicators used within the business.

Although an external reporting standard or framework is not required for assurance, they facilitate smooth reporting and assurance processes. We provide pre-assurance, limited or reasonable assurance opinions against the following frameworks and standards:
