More and more companies want to assume responsibility for society and the environment as good citizens. From this new thinking has emerged a global movement that we subsume under the term “impact business.” We use this instrument to help business and corporate leaders make their business models more sustainable and holistic.

In Latin America, we therefore cooperate with Sistema B, a community of leaders and impact businesses who drive forward the movement. Sistema B draws inspiration from the successful work of the B Lab, the U.S. American version of this alternative economic model.

Given limited resources, growing environmental pollution, and the obvious limits to growth, economic success needs to be redefined. In other words, success is not only reflected in quarterly figures. Success is reflected in how a company makes strategic use of its business model to improve people’s lives and protect the environment.
