Impact-Aligned Fees

At Growthink Impact, we align our goals with our clients’ by deferring a portion of our fees to the clients’ achievement of relevant metrics. This means that our success is directly tied to the success of our clients.

When we engage with new clients, we work with them to define specific, measurable Social and Environmental and / or Governance factors that align with their mission and impact goals, including:

  • Procurement of grants and subsidies from governments and foundations
  • More sustainable product development and delivery
  • Job creation for traditionally disadvantaged groups
  • Energy / carbon emissions reduction
  • Access to education and healthcare
  • Partnerships with sustainable stakeholders
  • Achievement of quality certifications.

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Once these metrics are established, a portion of our fees is deferred until the target is achieved. This aligns our interests with those of our clients, ensuring that we are both focused on delivering meaningful impact.

At Growthink Impact, we believe that this approach creates a true, long-term partnership between our firm and our clients, and it allows us to focus on what matters most: delivering results that drive growth and impact.

Why Now?

These organizations often lack dedicated skills, resources, and actionability.

Having social impact initiatives and sustainable practices at the core of the organization is not enough if the company is unable to reach scale and relevance

Impact investing as a sector has been a growing field over the span of the last few years. 2022 further intensified the growth of impact investment due to the venture of more mainstream investors in the market along with explosive growth in climate change finance. The GIIN estimates the size of the worldwide impact investing market to be $1.164 trillion, marking the first time that the organization’s widely-cited estimate has topped the $1 trillion mark. 

While impact investing in the past was perceived as a niche market, investors are now witnessing a landslide happening as private bankers and asset managers are focusing on how to incorporate things jointly to generate net positive investments.

Traditionally, economic growth has been associated with negative social and environmental impacts such as pollution, inequality, and depletion of natural resources. However, over the years, there has been a growing realization that sustainable economic growth is only possible if it also takes into account positive social and environmental impact. 

Businesses have come to understand that a positive impact on society and the environment can actually drive economic growth. For instance, companies that prioritize sustainability practices may attract a larger customer base who are interested in supporting environmentally and socially responsible businesses. Similarly, companies that invest in their employees’ well-being and development often see higher productivity and innovation, which can lead to increased profits.

By prioritizing these areas, businesses and other organizations can establish a virtuous cycle that supports both sustainable growth and a positive impact on society and the environment.
