What is your superpower?

MakeImpact is an app that matches the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to globally listed companies that share the same values as you. Our goal is to enable our users to make informed decisions about investments that align with their values represented in the 17 SDGs. We help our users make the investment via their own bank – allowing them to put their money where their heart is.

What SDG is your organization integrating into its core competency?

• SDG 4 – We ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all, by helping people to get started on their Impact Investing journey and providing them with knowledge about which companies to invest in order to act and be more sustainable

• SDG 8 – We promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all. We also hope that by helping people to put their money where their heart is, they will invest in companies which at the end will enable economic growth.

• SDG 17 – We strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable developments, by partnering up with the best in their field to ensure best service for our users and clients. We do not always need to reinvent the wheel, which is why finding the best in-class partner is a key driver and motivation for us.

Every hero has a villain – what challenges do you or your targeted group face?

The biggest challenge in terms of impact investing is lack of transparency and a baseline for how to rate/screen and measure the sustainable impact of the companies. A lot of metrics are currently on the market and new ones being launched, but even though they might seem great, it’s very hard to find one single way of measuring sustainability

What are you doing to overcome your villain?

We trust the global listed companies, which each year present their latest CSR / Sustainability report and Communication on Progress through the UN Global Compact Network where more than 13.500 companies are registered. For now, we do not provide any form of advice to our users nor do we screen any of the companies in our app.

Who is your hero and why?

My hero is everybody who is doing their best to fulfil their dreams. No one is better than anyone and we should not leave no one behind.
