We collaborated with Humanity United, part of the Omidyar Group, to develop a social impact framework and strategy. This pioneering effort is focused on reducing labor exploitation, human trafficking, and slavery through investments in supply chain solutions. We provided them with a robust set of impact metrics, due diligence tools, and portfolio management recommendations ensuring their investments align with their mission. Our strategy recommendations influenced their capacity to raise capital, and further supported their mission by co-hosting a panel at SOCAP17 entitled “A Test of Our Humanity: Investing in Human Rights.”
We provided Humanity United with a robust set of metrics and frameworks to measure the impact of their investment portfolio, ensuring their investments align with the organization’s mission and that Humanity United can track social performance over time. As of mid 2017, Humanity United successfully attracted millions in support of this initiative and made its first investment in Provenance, which uses blockchain technology to track products along global supply chains.
