The value balancing alliance e.V. is a non-profit organization with the ambition to change the way how company performance is measured and valued. The alliance’s objective is to create a global impact measurement standard for disclosing positive and negative impacts of corporate activity and to provide guidance on how these impacts can be integrated not business steering.
The alliance was founded in 2019 by several international companies and is consulted by the four largest accounting companies on a pro-bono basis. The OECD, leading universities such as Harvard Business School or the University of Oxford, and other stakeholders from government, civil society and standard-setting organizations support the alliance.
The value balancing alliance will make its work available to the public, targeting wide-spread adoption by other companies. This work will empower decision-makers to create and protect long-term value.
