Impakt IQ Launches Industry-Leading ESG Intelligence & Scoring Tool in Deployment Partnership with Accounting & Business-Consulting Firm Sensiba San Filippo
Impakt IQ’s ESG Intelligence & Scoring tool aligns with the world’s leading ESG and sustainability standards, including SASB, TCFD, and ISSB
SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) September 21, 2022
Impakt IQ (IIQ), an industry-leading ESG Intelligence Tool and consulting firm is pleased to announce their deployment partnership with Sensiba San Filippo LLP (SSF), a West Coast accounting and business-consulting firm.
The deployment partnership enables SSF to leverage Impakt IQ’s powerful ESG Intelligence & Scoring Tool, which makes it possible for companies to measure and manage their ESG intelligence and ESG score based on the world’s leading sustainability standards, including Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB), and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
The Impakt IQ toolkit addresses a company’s ESG blind spots and provides insight into ESG risks and impacts, allowing executives to benefit from auditable investment-grade data and intelligence to make informed business decisions. This toolkit connects all leaders of an organization, creating cross-functional awareness and holistic insight into ESG risks, opportunities, and value creation.
The Impakt IQ toolkit is to ESG what a Financial Report is to finance - it enables organizations to evaluate and generate their ESG scores internally, giving them insight and control over their ESG management, disclosure, and narrative in a way that aligns with investor-grade standards and is fully auditable.
“Recognizing the link between ESG, financial and brand performance over 15 years ago, I have been developing an ESG Intelligence tool to help business leaders evolve to sustainable business models profitably. The missing link to scaling ESG Intelligence and this tool had been the lack of a recognized global ESG standard — that changed in November 2021 with the announcement of the ISSB and subsequently SASB and TCFD rolling up under the ISSB,” says Elisa Turner, founder of Impakt IQ. “All the pieces of the puzzle now exist, and we are excited to be scaling the Impakt IQ ESG Intelligence tool 3.0 with SSF as a next step. When we looked for an industry partner to team up with SSF and their Sensiba Center for Sustainability was a logical choice as they are aligned in values and the belief that ESG performance today is interconnected to financial performance.”
“Accounting firms have been measuring and calculating risk from a business’s financial data forever,” says John Sensiba, managing partner of Sensiba San Filippo. “With ESG issues increasingly taking center stage in today’s interconnected economy, it only makes sense that we measure and calculate risk from all the non-financial sustainability data in a standardized way as well.”
“The SSF sustainability team has been beta testing this tool for several months on three separate projects; the initial feedback has been really positive as it is offering insights into areas for operational improvement and risk management” says Scott Anderson, SASB and audit partner at Sensiba San Filippo. “The fact that it is aligned with SASB and TCFD was critical to our decision making and this supports the credibility of the assessment outcomes. This alignment also reinforces that our assessment results will segue nicely into sustainability reporting that stakeholders are increasingly requesting.”
