ABOUT THIS EPISODE

JP Dallmann, host of Impact Leaders podcast talks about how Sustainable and Impact Investing is becoming more mainstream and why entrepreneurs need to be impact driven and getting aligned with the SDGs.

Welcome back to another episode of the IMPACT Goal Rush podcast. I'm your host, wintime, and in this episode we have a very special episode because I'm going to be interviewing JP Dalman, founder of Ila and partners and the host of impact leaders podcast. It's the number one podcast for sustainable and impact investing and he interviews the biggest institutional impact investors. In this episode, GP talks about the reason why businesses and entrepreneurs are positioning themselves to be more impact driven and aligning themselves towards the sustainable development goals. So I would like to take this opportunity to quickly mention my gratitude towards the sponsors of the impact leaders podcasts, which is Ucl University College London Institute of Global Prosperity, because without them my business wouldn't have started. So thank you to them and obviously go check them out. They have some very fascinating initiatives, such as the fast for...

...twenty thirty group, which is looking at encouraging entrepreneurs to be impact driven and aligned to the SDEGIES. So I hope you enjoyed this episode. Welcome to the show. JP. From your conversations and your work with so many impact entrepreneurs and impact investors, institutional investors, some of the big this institutional investors that you've been working with. What can you share us in terms of why is it important for businesses to be impact driven? Will thank you. Good question. I think the short answer is because it will help the business become sustainable and have a long term net positive effect in the world. So I tend to summarize it, be it kind of a longer answer. I believe that this kind of depends very much on our personal values, be as a...

...fund founder or owner or shareholder or investor or even an employee. There is a practical reason in terms of not the value or impact you create for consumers of your parallel services, which in turn will make your business more sustainable, last longer over time and ideally generate more profits. You know if you are for profit and Gonization, but it also applies for non for profit and in general. And for a long time we have spoken about a purpose, sometimes seen as the reason why you and your company exists. By the same time, we had not been looking at the impact that our businesses had as we lead our purpose. Sometimes it's easier to look at the simple example I say, to make people understand what. You know what we mean with this. So let's take kind of meet based Diet and Iver like the products as an example. So we know that the levels of mead we consume in some cultures is negative to people and the planet. So it's not sustainable. And in...

...my case, I was born in the culture that is built around this industry and even defines people in many ways and in many ways is part of the purpose of the life of producers and consumers. But so unless we understand and we start kind of really going deep to see what is the next impact of living, idea, consuming ideas, producing and these and begin planning for a transition, the future will be uncertain. Obviously, you you come from Argentina and that's that's what you're referring to. I'm guessing that, yeah, Anglo, Anglo Argentine, or or Argo British, the way you when I look at it. So yes, every time I go down South America, specially Argentina, but the whole of South America, very very much, I kind of a meet commit based Diet. You know, consumers. So JP, you know you you've been in this space for some time now and you know how can entrepreneurs be more aligned with the sustainable development goes, because I know...

...this is something that you've been really actively involved in since, since a couple of years now, and I know you've worked with many, many entrepreneurs over these few years. Could you share how can you entrepreneurs more aligned with the stiges? Yes, I would say anything is way beyond entrepreneurs, to be honest. The noisy applies to know, can larger kind of organizations that are again known for profit that are driving these and I will mention specifically the UN, and you mentioned as well on the Intro to your podcast. So the United Nations is the one that said the tone for it, but obviously you have no majorganizations all looking at it, you know, from from every angle, from public to private. But I would say that first I would say that, you know, people need to understand the stigies, not only what...

...they are, but which ones are important to them and if they already have a company, which ones you know are being affected, but their products and services, I would say. So actions that people can take, I think could include, first of all, visiting the United Nations website to gather information and learn. Secondly, I would say taking some personal self assessment, so or using tools that help you know, you understand, know which ones are the ones that you care the most about. In my case, I always tell people that, you know, once I did it, I realized that, aside from there are seventeen of them, but aside from all of them, which are very important, I care very much on the personal level about education, the sent sir, I would say building the stegies into your business models. They organizations that promote these and Co help you, such as, you know, pass forward twenty thirty, which you know about, which I see it in the board, and we work with together entrepreneurs and find tools...

...that help them build the processes and reports require. You know, on these goals. You know from a small company to know major organizations and including investment companies. So lastly, I would say you hire, you know, higher companies that can help in the process. You know, such as Ila and partners, which is my company, and know where we advise and actial institutions that want to transition into sustainable and impact investing. And one of the things that we do is use, you know, their party products to be able to measure the impact on their stegies. So, GP you've been the host of the impact leaders podcast for we for at least two years rate, and we have got forty episodes on that. You've done and what has been your biggest learning from running this podcast and also, of course, explain to people what the podcast is about. So, you know, I just mentioned, you know, my company, so, because you can all relate to this...

...as well. So Hiland Planners. And personally, you know, we support several initiatives and organizations to raise awareness about sustainable impact investing and stegies. I am personally and we are, on a mission to reach as many people as possible as one of the objectives, particularly in differancial industry, which is kind of know, who's a largely not the audience that listens to it, but it is much water than that as well, because you have companies and and entrepreneurs and people are large to listen. But you know, our focuses on, or kind of in terms of helping to accelerate the transition of capital into sustain or impact investing. So we're building the media based and content to complement, you know, our mission as a company and as an individual, and the podcast is one of the initiatives we support and which I host. The podcast features leaders focusing on sustain or impact investing and performance with purpose, supporting...

...the companies that are sold in the world's biggest challenges. And what we do is we share stories, messages and advice with you know, the main objectives often no one create an awareness about sustain or impact investing, to share in best practices from the leaders in the industry and, three, inspire others in the industry and beyond to take action for a fast transition. And I also appreciate that what we are creating with my guest is of grave value for current and future leaders as well as they can be in value, invaluable record for prosperity, which you know, posterity, I should say, which you know. I think that there is not enough of it and I think the biggest lesson, and you I would say that there's a few of them. One is that definitely you cannot do everything on your own, but people are willing to help, especially on this kind of group of individuals and companies that are...

...really trying to push the boundaries so that we can do things in a better way, in a more sustainable way. The second is something that obviously that in you learn with time as well, but is quite evident when you inte you to people to see how long it took them to do what they're doing and to achieve something, is that it takes time for people to understand concepts, something that I talk to many people about, and to take actions thereafter. So you need to know patient, patients and consistency. And if I didn't understand kind of lastly, if I do understand enough, before I launched the podcast about the complexity of the situation, the solutions and the collaboration required by all of stateholders, it became kind of a lot more clear how all the different parts play a role, which role the play. So as you listen to the podcast yourself, and I invite everyone to listen to a MP...

...different episodes, you you get understand, you know, the different players at the different levels of the investment world, but at the same time how then that relates to consumers, to the companies, to policy makers, regulators, etc. And I think that that was, have been, you know, quite wonderful all together. Takeaway and lesson amazing. I think one of the key things that I learned from doing and helping you on your podcasting is this, especially within this impact spaces, there's such a wide range of individuals and so many companies doing such such great things. And I mean you've interviewed a lot of people and some of these people have been working in the guess in the sustainability, in the impact space for a long time and I think it's really fascinating how many different parts of the financial world is actually changing and taking action and moving things forward. So I really thank you for all these inspiration...
