Change the world for the better

Better business, better world

According to the Better business, better world report, investing in sustainable transformation and innovation could generate economic opportunities worth $12 trillion by 2030. The Ifeane objective is to help businesses invest in activities that have a positive impact on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and help them demonstrate that they change the world for the better.

Impact scoring

Companies with high environmental impacts should be encouraged to lower their overall footprint (water consumption, energy …) and create more sustainable ways to operate. Defining how to measure and evaluate the impacts of business activities all along the supply chain and throughout the life cycle is an essential part of our methodology. We follow the recommendation of the Technical Expert Group on Sustainable Finance to implement tailored impacts scoring frameworks on top of a very granular impacts taxonomy and knowledge graphs.

Investing in the transition

Financing the transition to a sustainable economy requires vast sum of money ($6 trillion a year according to the United Nations). Impact scoring should encourage a global redeployment of capital towards investments that will have the greatest positive impacts. Investments and innovation evaluations are therefore key components of any impact investing strategy. Our models integrate these factors of transition to identify business opportunities.

Not only CO2

Greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions are at the center of the attention as global warming is posing an existential threat. However many other factors like pollution, water stress or biodiversity cannot be ignored and should be integrated into impact-focused investments.

Our mascot is a sea turtle. Sea turtles have thrived on earth for 100 million years. However, of the seven species of marine turtles found on Earth, six are also listed as vulnerable or endangered by CITES. Many threats to the sea turtles are linked to the ever-growing presence of humans: bycatch due to imprecise fishing methods, beach pollution, marine debris (especially plastic, oil spills) and climate change.

It is ironic that an animal widely revered by humans since the Paleolithic may be destroyed by them. Protecting turtles means sustaining the ecosystems that they rely on for their survival. This is one of the task humans can collectively achieve by making the right decisions and diverting investments toward sustainable goals.
