The pathway to making positive change happen – beyond Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) and “triple-bottom-line” reporting
Whether your organization has a clear impact strategy, roadmap and tracking in place, our suite of tools and processes are there to assess, measure, improve and track your impact, with the objective of making business and impact metrics inseparable.
Read first: We believe that existing impact measurement methodologies and reporting tools are hindering the creation of sustainable positive change in the world. This is due to the limited insight that these frameworks provide into an organization, and that they focus on reporting lines rather than behavioural/purpose change. Therefore, our approach to impact methodology starts with deep insights into each organization, adaptation to its business environment and desired theory of change, and often includes a deep re-thinking of its business model. As a result, and starting with the self-assessment, it’s a lot of work!
An accreditation to showcase that your organization has positive impact on the world, follows global standards of impact measurement, and has a clear roadmap to keep improving
The Impactful Organization™️ accreditation is proposed 50% of the public price to Kayapó members and Spinel clients
To go further, Impact as a Service (“IaaS”) is our in-house, strategic impact service, in which we take your organization from identifying impact opportunities that fit your business model, to establishing a clear impact roadmap and creating an impact measurement framework
*Ongoing Support: To receive the higher tiers of accreditation, an organization has to show willingness and a roadmap to keep improving its impact (”Tree”) and to engage other companies in the same direction/become an impact leader (”Forest”). To do so, we recommend ongoing support from either Spinel consultants or other impact professionals, to regularly review the state of your impact on the world and to further work on improving it.
Spinel has built a holistic approach to impact. We believe that an organization’s positive impact must go beyond Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) and the “triple-bottom-line” reporting, and that impact considerations are taken into account at each level of an organization’s business model.
We have worked with external partners to ensure quality and independence of opinion, and to align to global standards and frameworks of impact measurement, reporting and analysis. And we are looking for additional partners to further improve it!
