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.
