Capitalism is a driving force for human progress. However, it is also resulting in massive environmental degradation and social issues. The world urgently needs a more inclusive form of capitalism that internalizes the negative externalities of operations. The good news is, it is possible to measure a company's impact. If this data can also be translated into a common language that everyone understands, it can be contextualized and compared.

Impact Weighted Accounts does exactly this. It monetizes the positive and negative impacts of a company's operations on people, natural resources and the planet into dollar-terms, bringing greater transparency to the true impact of companies.

Impact transparency is a powerful driver of change, because it creates a race to the top among companies—not for profit alone regardless of damage, but to make profit while improving our society and planet.” - Sir Ronald Cohen
