Located in Toronto, Paul Klein founded Impakt in 2001 with the belief that corporations and civil society organizations should have a compelling social purpose. To truly measure the successes therein, he felt that initiatives in this area must be evaluated in terms of business results and social outcomes. Moving forward 15 years, corporate social responsibility and shared value have become defining characteristics of business worldwide. With corporations themselves now finding greater purpose, bettering not only their bottom lines but the communities in which they operate, Impakt has established itself as a pioneer. Regionally, nationally, globally – we recognize that corporate growth and social responsibility can indeed work hand in hand. As a thought leader and practitioner in a field that is re-defining what it means to be successful in business, we have proudly stood at the vanguard of the ever changing definition of effectiveness within civil society.
