The world faces significant challenges related to social and income equality, employment and economic opportunity, education, health and well-being, social protection and justice, sustainability, climate change and environmental protection.
Efforts are being made to address these changes. For example, the United Nations established 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) as an urgent call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
Sufficient capital exists to address the world’s challenges. However, that will require incentivizing social, economic and environmental investments, better targeting those investments to generate impacts, and be able to accurately assess the impacts in way that increases the effectiveness of future investments.
At Qatalyst, our role is to provide reliable assessments or verifications of impacts (whether an organization has their own impact measures or adopts SDGs, ESGs, IRIS+ or other standards), deliver impact data that can be trusted, and recommend how you can increase your impacts going forward.
Doing so require diverse projects teams. We've changed our operating model so we can more quickly and cost-effectively match clients with the diverse, multi-disciplinary teams of specialists they need. We’ve broadened our range of services to enable us to not only track the impacts of their activities but also prepare strategies for improvement and , when needed, assisting clients to implement those strategies s. We’ve made significant investments in new proprietary tools and technologies. And, most importantly, we have reaffirmed our commitment to making a difference. We did not get into in this business to just prepare reports; we exist to support our clients in their missions to make the world better for everyone.
