We believe in quality and results orientation
We believe that rigorous quality standards as well as strong result-orientation are needed to design effective financing solutions for international development and social innovation.
At Roots of Impact, we initiated the DESIGN PRINCIPLES FOR IMPACT-LINKED FINANCE in order to promote the most effective use of this practice. We also support the IFC OPERATING PRINCIPLES FOR IMPACT MANAGEMENT and the OECD DAC BLENDED FINANCE PRINCIPLES for Unlocking Commercial Finance for the SDGs.
We consider the impact of an enterprise as a performance that can be assessed, managed and optimized and strongly believe that this performance can be affected by the way in which the enterprise is financed.
We are mission-driven
We consider Roots of Impact an impact enterprise. We are committed to scale our positive impact on society and, in addition, reinvest the majority of our profits. The company is privately owned and did not distribute any profits to shareholders since its foundation.
