What is an impact accounting firm?
Impact accounting firms specialize in enabling clients to understand what social and environmental impacts they are having, how to increase the impact per dollar, and how to communicate impact for strategic advantage. Analogous to financial accounting firms, impact firms can both account for impact as well as audit reports, develop models of potential impact, calculate the value associated with impact, and so on. Impacts are the important, extra-financial outcomes that would not have happened without an organization’s activities, such as improvements in human or environmental health or security, avoided costs, or jobs created.
Our mission is to make impact management a standard procedure worldwide.
We believe that when people have the skills, tools and information to consider social and environmental as well as financial return, they will compete to ensure an equitable future for everyone.
