Impact Hotspot Analysis

What is the Impact hotspot analysis?

  • Maps six types of positive and negative impacts: financial, manufactured, intellectual, natural, social and human capital impacts
  • Determines the order of magnitude of the impacts
  • Uses a standardized list and definitions of impact indicators for each capital
  • Deepens the understanding of how your business creates value to society
  • Takes into account impacts on all stakeholders
  • Is in line with international developments in integrated reporting, e.g., the framework of the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC)
  • Can be applied on different levels, e.g., company, product, supply chain and investment level
  • Can be used to determine the scope of an Integrated Profit & Loss analysis, based on materiality of impacts.
