How can we make companies accountable for their impact on the planet?

We reinvent the way we measure them! It all started with this simple concept, read on to find out more.

Our Story.

Behind the sparks of the concept – years of work inside some of the largest financial institutions in the world. Yes, you read that right, our community founders came from the finance world. Surprising? It shouldn't be. Investors steer capital to companies all over the world that profoundly impact our everyday lives. They are the largest contributors to environmental and social issues and hold a great deal of power over the progress toward a sustainable planet. So yes, investment specialists wanted to ensure that we got the true measure of a company's impact on the planet.

Our Reality.

The founding members of the community were struggling and frustrated with the reality of the existing methods in place to measure businesses. But what about ESG data or CSR reporting I hear you say? Well, they measure practices rather than impact and they describe policies rather than outcomes. Plus, how can we ensure objectivity, when the data itself comes from the very company being assessed?


So the question arose - how can we create the ultimate resource of objective and quality impact information?

Our Goal.

With this in mind, they turned to you, as consumers, as employees, as inhabitants of this planet, who feel the impact of companies on a daily basis, to build this knowledge.

By putting the power in your hands and leveraging collective intelligence, we would not need to rely on single experts, it's a strategy that would ensure the depth, diversity, objectivity and relevance needed to create the ultimate impact platform.

The goal being that the data produced would be used by investors or financial institutes, allowing capital to get allocated to companies having the most positive impact. The founders also knew that this information was just as important to everyday citizens. Having the right information to decide who we work for, buy from and advocate for is equally important in driving the change, hence the decision to be a free access platform.


The final question came - how do ensure all of our contributors share a common language and approach?

Our Impact.

One framework for this assessment had been designed to do just that.

The Sustainable Development Goals provided us with the structure needed to align contributions and analysis of businesses impact. These clearly defined topics are in place to ensure we have the ability to prosper and thus made the perfect partner for us when looking at the impact of companies on the planet.

And the rest is history...


But we've still got a lot of work to do. You’re here because you are aware of the challenges we’re facing as a planet, maybe you’re looking for ways to contribute to the shift toward a sustainable world - well, where best to start than with the companies having the most profound impact of all?
