Putting innovation & intelligence at the service of impact effectiveness.
Today global companies invest over 1 Trillion dollars per year in social & impact related initiatives. Yet the gap between investments and results is growing. We are losing ground… It is absolutely critical to reverse this trend. More than ever, efforts and investments need to move needles on global sustainability challenges in our increasingly asymmetric and changing world. A new generation of bold thinking and evidence based impact solutions are thus absolutely necessary in order to drive forward a just transition.
A new generation of bold thinking and evidence based impact solutions
The Impact Company Lab was created exactly for this. Its objective is to rapidly build empirical evidence and forward looking best practices, to accelerate the impact of companies.
The Impact Company Lab is an experimentation platform designed to concretely grow the positive social & environmental impacts of global companies. It does so by leveraging ‘future-focused’’ perspectives, cutting edge methodologies, the power of companies, and the intelligence & know-how of HEC researchers.
The Impact Company Lab was co-founded by HEC & Schneider Electric in 2023, as part of the Sustainability & Organizations Institute (S&O). It thus works closely with the S&O Centres, while also forging strategic connections across the unique HEC Paris ecosystem in order to push forward new frontier knowledge and practices.
The Impact Company Lab is designed to deliver value at three levels:
