Sinzer recently announced a formal Data Partnership with the Global Value Exchange (GVE). In order to inform you of the GVE’s data and how your organisation can use this, we are presenting a series of blogs with more detailed information about the data sources GVE uses to extract outcomes, indicators and valuations from. This week we highlight the Progress out of Poverty Index™ (PPI), from which 600 poverty indicators have been added to the GVE database. As a result of our data partnership with the GVE, these 600 poverty indicators are now available on the Sinzer platform!
“Impact Matters” was the message we helped deliver during Impact Hub and Ashoka’s event last week in Vienna, aimed at informing social entrepreneurs about social impact and social impact measurement, and why no social entrepreneur should go without.
That was the central question of last weeks Round Table we co-organized with Deloitte. Together with 25 professionals from different sectors – impact investors, philanthropists, social enterprises and NGO’s- we shared experiences on the topic of impact measurement and how to account for it.
The connection between business and society is a popular topic. The social and environmental issues we face on a global level are becoming so significant that there are plenty of business opportunities in contributing to solving them. This is not only interesting from a risk and reputation management perspective. Sustainability can be a platform for profitable growth while solving wicked social issues.
