about us

why sustainability
and ESG?

Our collective responsibilities towards the environments and communities we live and work in cannot be met by any single industry, market, country, or organisation.

We believe in a brighter and more sustainable future where business decisions are influenced by transparent ESG data, shared understandings of sustainability concepts and targets, and measuring to manage progress in service of goals that benefit people, planet, and profit.

impactvise was co-founded by two lawyers with more than 40 years of experience in the legal world, and more than 20 years combined experience serving as General Counsels to major multibillion dollar multinationals. Our team knows first-hand the role of legal teams in shaping the actions, decisions, and desires of management teams, boards of directors, shareholders, employees, and clients.

 

We believe that legal service providers – particularly, lawyers at law firms and in-house corporate counsels - are key players in the modern value chain, and have a unique position to support the move towards a more sustainable future.

why lawyers?

why now?

As the global picture regarding the interconnectedness of our systems sharpens, an acknowledgment is underway that long-term social, environmental, and economic success depends on systemic change.

Now’s the time to move from signing pledges to taking action, and demonstrating the positive impact we can have, together.

for what purpose?

We believe in the power of collaboration and coordination to accelerate the sustainability transition.

 

Lawyers, law firms, and legal teams are increasingly facing the same standards and issues as the clients they are advising, so creating knowledgeable, credible advocates for both internal and external efforts is key. We are driven by a core set of beliefs that guide our actions, which we've summarised as the following:

our people

our clients + partners

Our clients and partners recognise sustainability and ESG as important to all stakeholders, and thus, their businesses and organisation. These considerations are strategic, allowing those with foresight and action to differentiate themselves from their competitors.

We work with anyone related to the legal space that wants to take action and make a difference, be it in-house legal teams at multinational enterprises or partners, attorneys, and individuals responsible for business development and ESG initiatives at local, regional, or global law firms.

who are they?

how do we help?

In short, wherever and however we can - be it providing a snapshot of where your legal team stands, providing hands-on strategic advisory services, or onboarding your team to crucial ESG fundamentals in our dedicated INSEAD academy.
