The postal industry is experiencing a transformational shift, caused by rapid globalization, the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic and the immense growth of e-commerce. Postal companies provide an indispensable service to society each day. However, with home parcel delivery growing by 16.5% in 2020, their impact on society and the environment also increased significantly. Moreover, the UN estimated that more than 70% of the world’s population will live in densely populated areas by 2050. Increasing demand for freight transport will require effectively managing these impacts, to turn them from risks into opportunities.

Impact valuation is a systematic way of measuring the impact of the core activities of a company, to manage risks, optimise costs and seize opportunities, and goes beyond the customary reporting and informing. Finch & Beak has co-developed a framework for impact measurement that can serve as an ESG tool to embed sustainability into vital business activities.
Impact valuation is an emerging approach to measure and value the effects of business activities on society and the environment. The impact valuation approach can support companies to ensure long-term and sustainable value creation by improved reporting, better strategic decision making, and improved operational management.

In this article we share three conditions to ensure successful use and execution of the impact valuation tool.
Impact measurement and valuation bring sustainability into the arena of strategic decision making, as it enables companies to manage risks, optimise costs and seize opportunities.
