Why IMPA ACT?
IMPA ACT is a management system that helps companies in maritime meet the globally-endorsed minimum standard for Responsible Business Conduct through the right tools and guidance. Its aim is to increase transparency in supply chains through CSR implementation.
IMPA ACT adds value to its members by offering:
A sustainability community
We facilitate the exchange of ideas on work with Responsible Business Conduct standards. Member companies are invited to join our private knowledge exchange group and benefit from continuos dialogue with other members. IMPA ACT members can join anytime by going here.
We keep track of all our members’ and their business relationships' work with the programme and we share and reward progress. A public database available on the IMPA ACT website recognises those companies that are in the process of implementing Responsible Business Conduct standards in their companies, as well as those that have been certified by the IMPA ACT team as having the right processes in place.
Resources and guidance
The IMPA ACT Members' Area is opened to all active IMPA ACT members and brings forward up-to-date guides and templates to facilitate the work required to meet the global minimum standard for corporate sustainability. This also includes questionnaire for assessing business relationships and guidance documents on how to engage with the programme.
A unified online platform for conducting CSR due diligence
Our long-standing partners over at Danish sustainability consultancy Global CSR have developed a state-of-the-art online platform that can be used by companies to manage and document CSR due diligence, the key component of the IMPA ACT programme. And we have partnered with them to bring our members generously discounted access to the platform, now included in the price of the annual IMPA ACT membership.
As a result, all IMPA ACT members gain access to the csrCloud online platform and are encouraged to use this to conduct their regular assessment of social, environmental and economic impacts for their main business unit (usually headquarters). The platform also allows for generating external reports document due diligence to assist annual CSR reporting, as well as sharing access to the platform with other staff responsible for implementation of IMPA ACT standards.
Training and Consultancy (separate discounted fees apply)
The IMPA ACT team also works with sustainability consultancy Alexony and can help IMPA ACT members struggling with capacity building and needing assistance in conducting their CSR due diligence, as well as communicating their efforts.
