Project Description

From Transparency To Transformation:

Unlocking the full potential of CSRD through impact accounting

The Impact Economy Foundation (IEF) introduces the Impact-Weighted Accounts Framework (IWAF) as a transformative tool for organisations already on the path to CSRD compliance.  This paper explores the parallels between the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) and the Impact-Weighted Accounts Framework (IWAF) while highlighting how IWAF surpasses transparency to instigate transformation. It delves into five key differentiated features that distinguish IWAF, illustrating its role as a transformative tool for impact management. Through a meticulous analysis of these features, the paper elucidates how IWAF is not a disruptive framework in the face of current regulations but rather an empowering complement.


Transition From Impact Reporting to Impact Management with IWAF

While CSRD ensures transparency in impact disclosure, it lacks clear directives for impact management and decision-making. IWAF addresses this by guiding organizations to strategically manage and leverage impact data, enhancing decision-making beyond reporting.
