A dynamic and holistic tool designed to trigger your thinking by giving you a new perspective on impact, which creates the freedom to make change happen
A 360 DEGREE METHODOLOGY
The Compass provides changemakers with a transformational set of principles - supported by tools and resources to guide and embed Impact. The Compass methodology brings to life these five life-affirming principles (5Ps); People, Planet, Partners and Places with Purpose at the Core.
The Compass is a tool to support the wellbeing of the whole system, and to support an economy in service of life within the safe space of the planetary boundaries - also consistent with the Wellbeing Economy.
AN INCLUSIVE AND QUALITATIVE APPROACH
The current generation of ESG (Environmental and Social Governance) and certification methodologies have a focus on doing LESS harm. The Positive Compass is about doing NO harm, as well as doing MORE good. This is a qualitative first, life-affirming approach, embedding all aspects of a company’s impact.
