COMPASS: The Methodology for Comparing and Assessing Impact


Building on efforts to standardise the components for and process of impact performance analysis, COMPASS incorporates feedback from Impact Invest and 150 other organisations. Specifically, it seeks to deepen the market’s ability to compare investments’ impact by: enabling investors to understand their contribution toward impact; embedding the context of both the investment and the investee directly into performance analysis; offering insight into three critical impact performance figures: scale, pace, and efficiency; describing key steps for analysis of impact results, and more.
