Collective Corporate Impact Strategies: How companies and corporate social investors can deepen, scale or broaden their impact

CI Collective Corporate Impact Strategies webinar 2021 speaker visual

Some aspirational companies and corporate foundations are increasingly looking for opportunities to pursue more holistic impact approaches. They have started to set up new organisations like impact funds, accelerators, or corporate social businesses that can complement their work, combining social impact with financial objectives.

In recent research, EVPA has outlined three ways in which companies with multiple corporate social investors can work together to broaden their impact on society, scale the impact of promising societal solutions, or deepen their impact on a particular community.

Watch the recording of this webinar to hear from pioneering organisations how they are combining different financial instruments, investment strategies and organisation types to take their impact to the next level.

Pim Mol, Managing Director at Rabo Foundation, will explain how Rabo Foundation, Rabo Rural Fund and Rabobank are adopting the scale strategy to scale the impact of farmer-based organisations that enable smallholder farmers in developing countries to become self-sufficient and produce enough food sustainably to feed the growing population.

Christophe Poline, Director of Solidarity Investments at Schneider Electric, will demonstrate how Schneider Electric Foundation, Schneider Electric Energy Access (SEEA) impact fund and Schneider Electric are pursuing the depth strategy to provide deeper support to communities in Sub-Saharan Africa that are deprived of energy access.
