What is social impact?

Defining social impact: more than a transaction

As businesses evolve, the integration of social impact into strategic plans becomes pivotal – beyond a choice but a mere necessity. Let’s delve into the significance of weaving social impact into business operations and how i=Change provides a seamless platform for such integration.

At i=Change, social impact goes beyond traditional boundaries. It’s not a mere transaction; it’s a conscious choice – one that resonates with purpose and impact. Here, each transaction becomes an opportunity to ignite change, an opportunity for your business and consumers to collaboratively contribute to issues that matter. 

Our vision

At it’s core, we are redefining the relationship between business and social responsibility. The i=Change platform empowers businesses and customers alike to be agents of change.

With every transaction, customers are empowered to choose which vetted NGO project the business gives back to. This act of giving is seamlessly woven into the fabric of your business and everyday transactions.

The imperative

For i=Change, social impact is not just a commitment; it’s an imperative.

Ethically, it aligns with the mission of responsible citizenship. Strategically, it propels brands into a realm of enhanced reputation, customer loyalty, and innovative giving.

Today, it’s not just about meeting consumer expectations, it’s about exceeding them. Giving back to the pressing social and environmental issues of our time isn’t just a strategic choice; it’s a necessity for those who aim to be purpose-led in a growing conscientious marketplace.

What to incorporate social impact

  • Identify impact areas:  Align with projects that resonate with your team and your consumers. Choose from over 50+ impact projects that have gone through an extensive due diligence process. This alignment creates a meaningful connection between your team, your consumers, and the societal issues you aim to address. 
  • Establish measurable goals: Brands can set clear and measurable impact goals through i=Change, amplifying their broader business objectives. Access impact results in your dashboard that transparently communicate the impact of the funds you have raise.d 
  • Transparency: This is the cornerstone of giving back. Utilise features like a live counter tracker to provide real-time impact updates that your brand can proudly leverage.
  • Cultivate a culture of responsibility: i=Change becomes more than a platform; it becomes a change catalyst. It fosters a culture of responsibility among brands and consumers alike, encouraging individuals to choose change whilst supporting businesses that demonstrate a commitment to social impact.
