Impact Resolutions Ltd.
Impact Resolutions Ltd. (IR) is a Buginese-Canadian, woman-owned-and-operated business practicing a unique synthesis of engagement, data collection and analysis for performance assurance standards, impact assessments, and diversity, equity, inclusivity and belonging services. IR’s work is grounded in collaborative Indigenous partnerships and participation. Through joint exploration, IR draws from collective strength and efficiency to improve project innovation, resilient outcomes, and adaptable strategies.
A portion of IR profits goes towards co-creating, funding, and supporting IR member-driven passion projects that are in kind for community-driven projects in Canada, Mexico, Lebanon, Turkey, and Pakistan.
IR specializes in cumulative effects and community driven assessment, management, and monitoring to produce highly structured reports, research papers, guidance documents, and presentations. Our project work has focused on co-developing cumulative effects information through the lens of well-being: body, mind, and spirit. IR understands that Indigenous ways of being are holistic and inextricably linked to ecological integrity and that pressures on the biophysical environment can stress the human environment as well as erode well-being.
IR is an approved Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) assessment body for Equitable Origin and has certified numerous operators throughout the years. This has brought transparency to the industry, increased demand for certified natural gas and helped operators differentiate themselves through responsible energy production. The IR team has supported the ESG certification of ARC Resources, Hammerhead Resources, Pacific Canbriam, Pipestone Energy and Vermilion Energy in Canada. IR assessors have also participated in several certifications in the US, including Chesapeake, EQT, Equinor and NNE.
