Now is a great time to join the Alliance!

The Value Balancing Alliance is a group of international companies developing a standard for Impact Measurement and Valuation (IMV).

 Benefits of becoming a member

The VBA acts as a practitioners’ lab to shape the future of accounting and business steering.


First-mover advantage: As non-financial reporting requirements expand, VBA members shape and anticipate future transformation trends. Together, we develop methods to measure corporate performance from two angles: enterprise value and impact on society.

Peer learning and expertise: Collaboration, co-creation and iterative piloting are at the core of what we do. Members build internal expertise that help them prepare in advance for future reporting requirements.

International reach: VBA members are in good company. As the voice of business, we speak to regulators from a position of experience, gained through testing value measurement methodologies in real company settings. We are changemakers towards a sustainable and more inclusive economy.

What our members and partners say about us

Saori Dubourg, BASF

„Now more than ever we need to rethink the role of business in society and take a new perspective on value creation. The value balancing alliance will help us to make better decisions to drive good growth and optimize our contribution to the environment, future generations and our shareholders“

Patrice Matchaba, Novartis

„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.“
