ESG Impact

Democratizing ESG for the Modern

About Us

Equipping private markets with ESG data, resources, and insights.

The mission of ESG Impact is to democratize ESG for private markets.

We provide accessible and pragmatic frameworks for companies and funds to assess and address ESG metrics most material to their operations. We believe that business ethics should not be transactional or cost a fortune. We understand that 'greenwashing' is the result of pushing ESG too far, using the complexity and myriad of frameworks as a means for confusion instead of a call for unified core metrics.

At ESG Impact, we conclude that the business entity should prudently consider their natural activities to encompass both profit and impact. However, these are not tradeoffs, as both measure a certain amount of 'value' given to business activities. Profit is the more explicit and quantifiable option, while impact is innately more wide-ranging and difficult to quantify. Therefore, ESG Impact was founded: to help companies in their measurements and meanings of impact.
