impak Analytics launches SFDR i, a combination of its SFDR module and its impak SDG Alignment (iSA) report (Alignment with the SDGs)

SFDR i helps financial market participants identify their sustainability goals and avoid reputational risks caused by fund reclassification

impak's integrated solution includes an automated Impact Data Collection Platform (iDCP), for private issuers, that enables easy-to-process, high-quality impact data and intelligence

MONTREAL, PARIS and LONDON, March 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- impak Analytics, a champion of sustainable investments, today launches SFDR i, a comprehensive solution that combines SFDR and impact data from public and private companies for use by participants of the financial market. This solution provides clients with the means to comply with the strictest standards required by the SFDR and, by providing users with actionable impact data, enables them to make the best decision towards sustainable change.

A means to ensure sustainable decision-making

The SFDR i de impak offer includes the 14 mandatory Main Adverse Events (PIA) (100%) and 26 of the 33 optional PIA's (78%); the rest will be integrated soon. The data will be available through the SaaS and the impak API. Furthermore, with its data transparency classification system (audited, unaudited, unknown and estimated), SFDR i's level of information is above current standards and embodies the high-level, rigorous methodology impak is known for.

Greenwashing is over

In keeping with its mission to help investors make more sustainable decisions, the iSA report provides detailed and easy-to-understand data and impact analysis including a comprehensive analysis of the positive and negative contributions of companies to the SDGs. This helps financial market participants to identify quantifiable sustainability goals, thus avoiding being duped by greenwashing and costly reputational risks.

"The core element of impak has always been high-quality impact data, which, in our view, is the only strategy that ensures accurate analysis and concrete sustainable change. The cascading reclassification of Article 8 funds into the months has proved us right, so our teams have intensified their efforts to create a product that facilitates compliance with the latest SFDR Tier 2 standards and provides impact intelligence at the same time," explains Paul Allard, Co-Founder and CEO of Impak Analytics.

Hassle-free VC data collection

The integrated solution SFDR i from impak Analytics is also applicable to private issuers and automates data collection through its easy-to-use platform, with visualizations of investment portfolios and companies, which once again facilitates sustainable decision making .

"This tool is available to private companies with the same high levels of analysis and quality as publicly traded companies, and this is what makes our offering unique today. It is a real tour de force for our technical teams ", concludes Cédric de St-Léger, CTO of impak Analytics.

SFDR i, the hybrid that the market needed

The impak Analytics methodology is based on the most rigorous impact market standards and principles, which means that SFDR i's hybrid approach can help improve decision-making for participants in various financial markets. By having a clear and documented understanding of their assets' sustainability efforts, participants can minimize reputational risks for both publicly traded companies and private companies (thanks to impak's automated data platform).

A trial version of the platform that includes real companies and reports is now available through a freemium program.
