We Believe in
In times gone by, or at least since Adam Smith wrote The Wealth of Nations in 1776, businesses have, primarily, been motivated by the conventional bottom line, a singular objective of maximizing profits or shareholder wealth with no regard to the planet, people, and purpose.
Over the last fifty years, however, environmentalists and social justice advocates have pushed for a broader definition of the bottom line to include social and environmental impacts as well. This triple bottom line is commonly called the three P’s: people, the planet and profit.
We believe in a fourth bottom line: purpose. We call this 4x Impact.™ Consequently, we help businesses achieve great success while doing great things for humanity by using our 4x Impact™ framework that focuses on people, the planet, profit, and purpose. Flourishing occurs as a result of our work.
Our 4x Impact™ framework has helped many organizations significantly improve their financial results while at the same time allowing communities and people to flourish financially, emotionally, spiritually, and physically.
Specific examples of our work include:
Facilitating several private sector clients’ planned manufacturing expansions – which provides a significant social benefit – into Eastern Europe and then traveling to introduce the clients to a number of leaders in that country.
Assisting a public sector client in an African country solve a variety of technical challenges in their domestic infrastructure through adaptive solutions that helps the environment and created hundreds of new and well-paying jobs.
Helping a social sector client raise capital, start, and manage a farming operation in Southeast Asia that resulted in a 37.62% ROI while employing over a thousand community members, improving the environment, and eliminating a variety of social ills in the process.
Supporting a social sector client in the Americas, whose environmental mission was impacted by a deficit in funding, create a new private sector entity, in a complimentary industry, that is focused on profit-making. In doing so, the client was able to successfully supplement its philanthropic funding, providing it with its largest budget in nearly thirty years.
