Regional Impact Councils
The Institute works in support of IMPACT2030 by incubating Regional Impact Councils around the world. Impact Councils are comprised of individuals from regionally-based organizations, representing the private sector, public sector, academia, and civil society, with a shared interest in achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through employee volunteering.
Council members work together to:
Identify local companies and business associations interested in advancing the practice of employee volunteering and introduce them to the work and goals of IMPACT2030 and the SDGs
Capture local and regional data on the status and practice of employee volunteering, as well as regional or international barriers (cultural or legal), gaps in private sector capacity, and best practices and standards relating to employee volunteering
Promote the work of IMPACT2030 and advocate for partner and stakeholder projects within a given geographical area
Assist with the reporting and tracking process of employee volunteerism on a regional level
Regional Impact Councils are a key mechanism towards achieving the mandate and objectives of IMPACT2030. The goals of the councils will vary according to composition, the SDG goals and targets addressed, regional issues and priorities, the interest and capacity of the community partners, the timeline of the projects, and the available resources.
