Certification Reviews & Testimonials

Hear from some of our Certified Analysts on what they thought of our training.

"Being a part of Impaakt’s extended family has helped me immensely with my work as a sustainability & impact investing consultant. What differentiates Impaakt from other impact measurement platforms (if any) is its ability to tap into collective intelligence from all over the globe without compromising content quality and consistency. Special kudos to the reviewers for meticulously assessing my impact analyses and helping me push my boundaries. Engaging with Impaakt has taught me how to cut through impact-washing and see corporations’ most significant positive and negative impacts for what they truly are."

"As a Sustainability Consultant in South Africa and with Impact Investing receiving much attention at the moment, I decided to look into the Impaakt training for self-development. Impaakt brings together ESG reporting with achieving the SDGs on the road to a more sustainable world. The training & platform provide for a great learning experience within the Impact Investment/Reporting environment. As a student, you'll learn how to analyse companies’ Sustainability reports to understand SDG impacts. This will provide a stronger foundation for future advisory work.

"As a PDD engineer transitioning into the technology policymaking space, I found sustainability to be the most crucial link between a draft on paper and a workable solution.

Impaakt's program gave me the much needed insights in terms of SDGs, and has helped me focus more on important data otherwise ignored while analysing impacts."

"Training at Impaakt augmented my cognizance and reshaped my thinking about how companies can be instrumental to move towards a sustainable future. Also, being an Impaakt Analyst, the platform gave me the opportunity to hold the conglomerates accountable for their social and environmental damaging corporate practices."
