Capital markets that have been traditionally driven solely by profitability are shifting towards incorporating long-term sustainability goals and metrics into their investment strategy. Thus, the flow of investments into the impact investing ecosystem is increasing exponentially, bridging the gap between profitability and impact.

And we believe that clarity on intentionality and transparency on how impact results are measured are at the core of this revolution to accelerate change at a global scale.
