We integrate business into society and nature for a better future.
Our standardized model empowers decision-makers to create and protect long-term value.
what we do
We create a global impact measurement and valuation standard for monetizing and disclosing impacts of corporate activity. The standard will further provide guidance on how these impacts can be integrated into business steering.

„The value balancing alliance aims to standardize impact valuation. We believe standardization is required in order to drive broader adoption and will ultimately serve stakeholders – including shareholders and governments – helping to effectively compare non-financial performance among companies. At Novartis, we have developed and tested our approach to Financial, Environmental and Social (FES) impact valuation, and we are interested in sharing our experience and exchanging with other like-minded companies to help evolve it further.“

Prof. STEFAN ASENKERSCHBAUMER, Bosch
"The great importance we place in sustainability and social responsibility goes back more than 130 years, to our company founder Robert Bosch. At Bosch, we see environmental concerns as both an engine of innovation and a business opportunity. We firmly believe that sustainability pays off not only socially, but economically as well. It is important to create standardized methods that will allow as many companies as possible to make the right decisions and to create social value through their actions. We are pleased to be part of the value balancing alliance and want to learn from the experience of the other members, so that society can benefit even more from entrepreneurial decisions in the future."
