We support organisations to understand, communicate and transform their impact.
Think Impact started with a small group of sustainability specialists imagining we could make a living from making the world a better place.
We committed to doing just that.
Now, by helping organisations increase their capacity to understand and manage their social and environmental impact we directly contribute to thriving environments, resilient communities and an inclusive economy.
‘Prosperity’ has traditionally been equated with the accumulation of wealth and material possessions. We are long overdue for a re-think of this ‘prosperity-as-usual’, and are actively defining a new prosperity that combines both wealth and wellbeing.
We move society towards this new prosperity by working collaboratively with others to understand, communicate and transform their impact.
A new prosperity that combines both wealth and wellbeing contributes to:
- Thriving Environments
Our climate and ecosystems are safer and healthier
- Resilient Communities
Our societies have reduced vulnerability and enhanced wellbeing
- Inclusive Enterprises
Our enterprises provides equitable access to opportunity for the benefit of all
