We work with public and private companies making impact investments, as well as businesses with social missions including B Corps and social enterprises.
How Companies Approach Impact
To stay at the forefront of innovation, support workforce pipelines and better serve the communities in which they work, many forward-looking companies are making impact investments often from corporate venture arms to improve their environmental and social footprints while delivering long-term economic value.
The Impact Challenges That Corporations Face
Companies interested in impact investing often have the expertise and track record to make impact-aligned, forward-looking investment decisions. Their primary challenge is deciding how to focus their investment activity to drive the greatest impact and how to communicate the results to their broad set of stakeholders.
How Tideline Helps Companies Address These Challenges
Tideline helps companies understand how to align their impact aspirations with their sector and business model. Tideline partners with well-intentioned companies to set a strategic vision and plan. Tideline then helps companies understand and report on their activity and results by combining quantitative and qualitative analyses and framing those learnings within the context of best practice impact investing standards.
Since 2008 Danone Communities, the impact investment fund of Danone S.A., has been investing in Social businesses which give access to safe drinking water or nutritious food. It has been pioneering in supporting decentralized production model of safe water, the safe water enterprises.
To further address this need, Danone brought on Tideline to help design and develop a new impact fund to scale access to affordable water and accelerate investment in financially sustainable solutions to the water access problem.
