Accreditation

Impact Economics Certified Consultants are the only professionals in the world that can accredit an organization to become a part of the Impact Economics network.

The bottom line is that companies accredited as part of our Impact Economics network make more money and have a bigger positive impact on their employees, supply chains, communities, and the environment. 

The Accreditation Process

In Place Impact has designed a number of unique and proprietary tools that allow Impact Economics Certified Consultants to accredit organizations as being part of the Impact Economics network within their own communities and across the world. 

Businesses - The Corporate Impact Index

The Corporate Impact Index (CII) is an online consulting tool comprised of +/- 150 questions broken into 7 segments. Identity, Profit, Brand Equity & Value, Corporate Culture, People, Purpose, and Planet. Each section is replete with questions that touch every aspect of a business where each answer is scored based upon 30-years of work into best practices in each area. 

Business and corporations retain Impact Economics Certified Consultants to be put them through the CII, the result of which is a score for each section, and overall score, and an in-depth report showing the business owners and leaders where they are today, and where they could be tomorrow. 

Corporations or businesses scoring 80% or above are immediately accredited, those scoring less have the option to further retain the consultant so that scores of 80% can be obtained. The data clearly shows that companies with scores of 80% or above have:

  • The highest margins, profits, brand equities, brand values, and employee and client/customer retention rates

  • The best chance of hiring the best and brightest talent

When accredited, companies receive accreditation materials to display on websites, printed materials, and at their places of operation, plus they become part of a global network of accredited organizations what can share best practices and attend annual events. 

Communities - The City and Community Impact Index

The City & Community Impact Index (CCII) is an online consulting tool comprised of +/- 250 questions broken into 7 segments. Identity, Budgets, Community, Organizational Culture, People, Purpose, and Planet. Each section is replete with questions that touch every aspect of a who a city or community is run, and where each answer is scored based upon 30-years of work into best practices in each area. 

Cities and communities retain Impact Economics Certified Consultants to be put them through the CCII, the result of which is a score for each section, and overall score, and an in-depth report showing the civic leaders where their organizations and communities are today, and where they could be tomorrow. 

Cities and communities scoring 80% or above are immediately accredited, those scoring less have the option to further retain the consultant so that scores of 80% can be obtained. The data clearly shows that cities or communities with scores of 80% or above have are further along in their quest to create places that are economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable for ALL residents.
