What is the GIF?

A simple way of identifying good stuff your business should do.

GIF was created to address what we believe is the big challenge of sustainability - its complexity.

Sustainability is a concept that can mean many things to many people. Who doesn’t want to work towards a more sustainable future - but what does that mean exactly? There are a myriad of sustainability certifications on the market these days, and each of them have a slightly different focus. This all adds to the confusion for newcomers to figure out what under the hood of sustainability is relevant for them, what is credible, and what can be trusted.    The Good Impact Framework (GIF) was created to address what we believe is the big challenge of sustainability - its complexity. With a potential scope covering all potential economic, environmental and social impacts, it can be so confusing that it is often hard to know even where to start.    The GIF partners are on a mission to distill this complexity into something that is easy for everyone to understand. Our hope is that this enables more confidence to start taking action, and to deliver more positive impact for people and the planet.  
The Good Impact Framework is an independent sustainability framework and resource library, curated by partners who share the goal of driving more positive impact for people and the planet.

CoGo is the founding partner who’s role is to deliver and maintain GIF. In addition, GIF is overseen by independent advisors who are each experts in their respective areas of sustainability. Our advisors decide which resources and certifications are strong enough to be included in the GIF.    The main goal of the GIF is to be a trusted resource for anyone who wants to understand what sustainability is, and what they can do to promote positive impact. GIF is a useful tool whether you are new to sustainability, or wanting to drill-down into a topic. No matter what your target is, GIF helps you establish a plan and measure progress on your journey. Step by step, GIF helps you to achieve real impact.
