An impact economy is a market economy that provides the values, information and incentives that
optimise the common good and enables people to pursue their own preferences, ideas and projects to
satisfy their needs while having a positive impact on society.
To realise the impact economy, we need to broaden the group of businesses that aim to realise impact and deepen the integration of impact into businesses. This requires developing enabling practices:
- A cohesive architecture for the impact economy
- Universal and standardised measurement, valuation and reporting of impact
- Availability of high quality, and preferably, real-time information and data on impact at low cost
- Government regulation and policies that require transparency and incentivise positive impact
