The Partners of the Impact Management Platform have welcomed two more organisations to join the initiative. Effective today, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) will join the existing group of Partners in their collective efforts to mainstream the practice of impact management.

ISO is an independent, non-governmental international organisation with 168 national standards body members. It has recently identified 521 international standards from its portfolio as directly supporting positive climate action, with many more available and in development that are relevant to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Their work towards transforming intentions into measurable and verifiable sustainability information makes them a valuable addition to the Platform.

TNFD is a science-based global initiative whose market-led framework enables organisations to improve their nature-related risk and opportunity management disclosures. Since formally launching in 2021, TNFD has sought to achieve improved interoperability with other international norms and frameworks, such as the Global Biodiversity Framework. Their membership of the Platform will boost the Partners’ efforts to improve how nature-related impacts are managed, as well as the connectivity between disclosure and the other actions of impact management.

These organisations have agreed to the Platform’s Terms of Reference, enabling them to collaborate with the Partners via regular technical discussions across their joint work programme. All of the Partners’ collective outputs from this work programme are published on the Platform’s website. These materials reflect their consensus view of impact management as an emerging business discipline.
