THE ROLE OF BUSINESSES IN AN IMPACT ECONOMY

We believe businesses have an important role to play in realising a more just, inclusive, and sustainable world respecting human rights and the planetary boundaries. Their ability to transform and become impact-driven will determine their long-term success – how they thrive and even survive in a world tested by environmental and social shifts. Impact-driven organisations use a fact-based approach for measuring the financial, environmental, and social impact of their activities – throughout their value chains – and integrate this into their purpose, strategy, decision-making, and reporting. They are better able to own their strategic narrative, uncover new value opportunities, drive long-term performance, and anticipate emerging risks, thereby accelerating societal transitions.

HOW WE CONTRIBUTE

We help organisations transform towards more sustainable and regenerative business models, thereby accelerating societal transitions. We do so by focusing our work on the following three pillars:

IMPACT MEASUREMENT

We have methodologies, tools, and data to assess the positive and negative impacts of organisations. We do so by using our in-house software, data, and education solutions.

IMPACT STRATEGY

We provide impact strategy advice, frameworks, tools, and thought leadership to manage and optimize impact. We help enrich decision-making with broader value creation and impact performance indicators.

IMPACT REPORTING

We build transparent and comprehensive reports that are compliant with current regulations and requirements. We adapt to client needs and we deliver holistic and robust reports.

OUR AREAS OF EXPERTISE

We guide organisations through societal transitions and help them navigate complex sustainability-related topics.

SUSTAINABLE FINANCE TRANSITION

The financial sector is uniquely positioned to accelerate the transition to an Impact Economy, it can mobilise capital, direct funds into areas that benefit society, and appropriately price social and environmental risks.

FOOD SYSTEM TRANSITION

In light of the population growth and environmental challenges ahead of us, we need to transition to a future-proof agri-food system. This can only be achieved by creating value for all, from farmers and food workers, to the final consumer. Our current system is harming both our planet and us who live on it. This transition will greatly improve living conditions of society worldwide and largely reduce pressure on nature.

ENERGY TRANSITION

A clean and just energy transition is paramount to accelerate the impact economy. Clean and just is more than decarbonization – it is about clean and affordable energy, while addressing air and water pollution, biodiversity loss, and human rights violations. In choosing the right mix of energy sources, it is important to properly assess external costs. We provide data, strategies and advisory services to put impact first – and not only EUR and CO2.

SUSTAINABILITY REGULATION

Transparency on sustainability performance has moved from voluntary to mandatory disclosures with the adaptation of the CSRD, SFDR and upcoming CSDD. With 10+ years in impact measurement, reporting and management, we help organisations navigate the complexities, address new and existing topics, and move beyond regulatory compliance.

BIODIVERSITY

Biodiversity loss not only threatens the survival of ecosystems, but also economies and societies that depend on ecosystem services. Protecting biodiversity should be the basis of any activity we engage in. We help companies understand, measure, and value their contibution to biodiversity loss. We provide data and tailored strategies to reduce firms’ negative impact.

HUMAN RIGHTS

A clean and just energy transition is paramount to accelerate the impact economy. Clean and just is more than decarbonization – it is about clean and affordable energy, while addressing air and water pollution, biodiversity loss, and human rights violations. In choosing the right mix of energy sources, it is important to properly assess external costs. We provide data, strategies and advisory services to put impact first – and not only EUR and CO2.

RESOURCE TRANSITION

An impact economy promotes durability, reparability and recyclability of products and resources while staying within planetary boundaries. In addition, it should also consider workers’ and human rights. The transition to an impact economy requires circular business models, infrastructure, materials and design practices. This can generate environmental benefits as well as increase the resilience of organisations in a highly connected global economy.
