In this webinar, Kat will introduce and then share early insights and learning on Acumen's Energy Lean Data project. The project is collecting baseline and follow-up customer data using the Global Off-Grid Lighting (GOGLA) harmonized impact metric indicators and Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (GACC) indicators, alongside Lean Data-standard impact and customer insight questions. Across 7 countries, 3 continents, and 10 companies, the results of this project will provide new insights on Acumen's energy investee companies, will enable a deeper understanding of impact, and will set the foundation for using metrics as a benchmark for social performance. Providing, for the first time, a chance to direct capital most effectively for financial and social success.
