Pulling new players to the impact sector

Jeronimo Osio, Emprenta LLC

Most people think that impact investors are only looking for potential investments in companies where its core strategy is to generate environmental and social impact, but we are going to prove this statement wrong. Emprenta is transforming businesses with no social or environmental focus into responsible companies, implementing, along with its investment, an impact plan that will guide step by step what practices each company has to implement to generate impact. This approach is called “Floor & Ladder” and allows companies with acceptable practices, the floor, to have an incremental action plan, the ladder, to implement internal changes to deliver a triple bottom line return.
