What is Impact?

Impact is the new conduit of value for global business, referring to the combined environmental, social, and economic contributions of well-managed, ethical, and future-orientated businesses.

Given its centrality to the evolving collaborative business landscape, investors increasingly use impact as a key criterion in their funding decisions.

When proactively activated, impact generates intrinsic and measurable business value – such as through innovation, improved reputation, market share, license to operate, customer loyalty, staff motivation, and efficiency.
