Our Sustainability Project
At In Place Impact we are committed to developing more vibrant, inclusive, and resilient local economies. We believe that modern business leaders are the most important people in the sustainable future room, and that through business, economics, and innovation, we can create resilient communities that are economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable for all stakeholders and residents.
Inclusive impact innovation = resilient economic vibrancy
Our focus is on building stronger, more inclusive and resilient economies within the communities we live and work. By helping our clients deliver the futures highest and most sustainable profits, we are able to achieve our goals.
We achieve this by giving back in our clients' names.
15% of our REVENUES go to fund the creation of a local hub of vibrant impact innovation.
By asking our clients to redirect 15% of the fees they would have paid us for helping them grow their businesses in a fully sustainable way, they are helping create a more vibrant and sustainable economy for their communities.
We request that our clients redirect 15% of our fee as a tax deductible donation (in their own name) to a local academic institution that has embraced the need to embed consequential learning and inclusive impact innovation studies in their curricula. In our community of Charleston, SC, that school is the School of Business at the College of Charleston. Many of the classes we design and help teach within schools become the most sought after classes by the students.
By redirecting our fees as direct donations from our clients (in our clients' names), we become catalysts for:
Supporting the school
Creating, sustaining and helping teach new Impact focused classes
Fostering impact focused innovations purposed to solve local socioeconomic and environmental problems
Creating a more inclusive, resilient, and sustainable local economy
Helping grow the brand and goodwill of our clients
As our founder continually reminds us:
“Of course we must leave a better world for our children, but we must also leave better children for our world”.
All of the work we do with academic institutions, including designing and helping teach the classes, mentoring students, etc., etc., is all pro bono.
5% of our REVENUES go to help fund locally grown impact innovations purposed to help solve local socioeconomic and environmental problems.
We ask our clients to redirect an additional 5% of the fee they would have paid us as an investment (in their names) to a local Donor Advised or Impact Investment Fund. The money can only be used to help fund local impact innovations coming out of the student and free community Impact Entrepreneurship classes we run in our community. For many people, the “friends and family” early investment rounds are not available, hence, it is important that we find ways to fill that gap. Our clients donations or investments help do just that.
When you do the community work that we do, you realize that the people facing the problems actually have the solutions. That is why we provide totally free community impact entrepreneurship classes that any resident of our community can attend.
All of the community work we do, including designing and teaching the community class, and mentoring local impact/social entrepreneurs is pro bono.
The clients of Impact Economics Certified Consultants and their employees love immersing themselves within the Impact Economics network built within their communities. They mentor students and residents, get involved with the schools, help innovate, network with peers, and contribute to building the community they would like to see.
Impact Economics Certified Consultants are the only professionals in the world that:
Do all of the pro-bono work required to embed Impact Economics in the communities they reside in
Donate 20% of their revenues (in their client's names) to help create inclusive sustainable communities based upon business, economics, and innovation
We take pride in the work we do for our clients, and for the stakeholders and residents we help in the communities we live in.
