SVT Group is an impact measurement and management firm for organizations with a compelling purpose and concern for our future. A pioneer in the impact management space in 2001, they've worked with impact investors, businesses, nonprofit organizations, foundations, and governmental entities of every stage and scale worldwide. Today, SVT designed systems have been used to assess the impact of over $9Bn in private equity, debt and grant assets. Every group has a compelling impact story to tell. Understanding, quantifying, and scaling that impact, however, can be extremely difficult for businesses to undertake alone. As demands for accountability and transparency grow, SVT wants to ensure that impact management and business management are no longer at odds with one another - that, in fact, when the two are properly combined, companies can truly achieve profitable growth, contribute to social equity and protect our planet. SVT envisions a world in which it pays to do good.
