We are delighted to announce the first conference that brings together the diverse communities involved in the rapidly evolving field of net impact (evaluating the positive and negative effects of business in relation to sustainability). As highlighted by a recent EU report on Net Impact, net impact has strong and growing links with most natural capital accounting approaches as well as with many other sustainability concepts such as social capital accounting, integrated reporting, SDGs, impact investing, circular economy and green infrastructure.

Many have worked on the topic for a number of years, and in some cases, decades – in particular in relation to carbon and biodiversity. However, attention is now being targeted at other issues such as water, waste, energy, pollution, jobs, skills and wellbeing. At the same time, focus is extending from projects and products to company and value chain levels; with some beginnng to adopt a multiple ‘integrated’ approach too, rather than just focusing on single issues.

The conference provides a unique and timely opportunity for anyone involved in the topic to hear from over 20 thought-leaders on the subject, as well as to meet and learn from many other experts. It offers an ideal platform for the multiple players, including businesses, governments, financial institutions, investors, NGOs, academics and consultants, to openly discuss and explore the extensive synergies, challenges and opportunities posed by the topic.

Key conference objectives include to:

Consider the vision for Net Impact approaches.
Explore and develop the business case for action.
