So thank you to them and obviously yougo check them out. They have some very...

...fascinating initiative, such as thefast for O Tosand, a thirty group which is looking at encouraging entrepreneursto be impact driven and Aligne to the sdgs. So I hope you enjoy. This episode. Welcome to the show JP from yourconversations and your work with so many impact entrepreneurs and impactinvestors, institution investor, some of the biggest institutional investorsthat you've been working with. What can you shave in terms of? Why is itimportant for businesses to be impact driven wond? Thank you good question. I think the short answeris because it will help the business become sustainable and have a long term,Ned positive effect in the world. A how I tend to summarize it t be kind of alonger answer. I believe that this kind of depends very much on our personalvalues, be as a fund founder or owner...

...or shareholder, or investor or even anemployee. There is a practical reason in terms of the Balue or impact youcreate for consumers of your poosol services, which in turn will make yourbusiness more sustainable, last long overtime and, ideally Generat moreprofit. You know if you are for profit domanization, but he also applies fornon for profet and in general, and for a long time we have spoken about apurpose, sometimes seen as the reason why you and your company exist. By thesame time, we had not been looking at the impact that our businesses had aswe lead. Our purpose sometimes is e sad to look at sine example. I say to makepeople understand what you know what we mean with this, so let's Tay kin of madday diet and I related products as an example. So we know that the levels ofmad we consume in some cultures is negative to people and the planet. Soit's not sustainable and in my case I...

...was born in a culture that is builtaround this industry and even defines people in many ways and in many ways ispite of the purpose of the life of producers and consumers. But so, unlesswe understand- and we start ging o really going deep to see what is thenet impact of leaving IDs consuming it thes producing a tes and beginin noplanning for transition? The future will be uncertain. Obviously you comefrom Agentina and that's and that's what you're referring to I'm guessingthat Youanglagintino or ago British. The way you want, I look at it so yeah.Every time I go down South America Special Dogentina, Bu, the whole ofSouth America Verin very much kind of a meet good, midbased diet. You knowconsumer so GP. You know you've been in this space for some time now and youknow how can entrepreneus be more...

...aligned with the sustainabledevelopment goes because I know this is something that you've been really actively involved in. Since youknow, since the couple of years now- and I know you've worked with many manyentrepreneurs over these few years, can you share? How can you entrepreneus bemore aligned with thesdgs? Yes, I would say Ini is way beyond Antopenurse. To be honest, the mnoshe applies to no larger kind of organizations that Igain known for profit that are driving teese and you know well. Mention ispeciticly the UN, an you mention as well on the into your podcast. So theUnited Nations is the one that set the tone for, but obviously you have minomajor anisations, all looking at it, ou n from from every angle, from nopublicto private, but I would say that first, I would say that you know people needto understand thertgs, not only what...

...they are but which ones are importantto them and if they already have a companywhich ones you know are being affected, but their products and services so ouldsay so. Actions that people can take, I think, could include first of all,visiting the United Nations website to gether information and learn, secondly, I'll say taking some personalselfassessment so or using tools that help. You know you understand now,which ones are the ones that you care the most about, in my case, always Telpeople that you once I did it. I realized that aside from othere areseventeen of them, but from all of them, which are very important. I care verymuch on the personal level about Education Ouesen, so I would sedbuilding the SGS into your business models. The organizations that promotethese and cou help you such as you know, far past forar, O Thandan thirty, whichyou know about which I seeidt in the board, and wewere with to gether into Cenese and...

...find tools that help them build. Theprocesses and reports require you know an these goals. Yo know from a smallcompany to know major organizations and including investment companies. So,lastly, I would say you hire you know higher companies that can help in theprocess. You know such as Ila an partners which is my company nowwhere.We advise Financiin stitutions that want to transition into sustainable andimpact Investin, and one of the things that we do is use. You know te partyproducts nor to be able to measure the impact on the stgs, so gt you've beenthe host of the impact leaders podcast for well for at least two years right Yand we have got forty episodes on that you've done and what has been yourbiggest learning from running this podcast and also, of course, explain topeople what the podcast is about. So you know I just mentioned you know mycompany. So because it can all relates...

...to this as well, so i Lam Panis thatunpersonally, you know we support Severa initiatives and organizations toraise awareness, abow sustainae impact investing andedgs. I am personally andwe are on emission to reach as many people as possible as one of the ourojective, particularly in the flanch industry, which is kind of you know howsay largely o the audience that listens to it. Bu is much warter than that aswell, because you have companies and Anento Tenes am people are large tolisten, but you know our Foca season or CONV in terms of helping to acceleratethe transition of capital, Inttano INPA Investim, so we're building a mediabase and content to compliment. You know our mission as a company and asindividual and the podcast is one of the initiatives we support and which Ihost the podcast features: leaders focusingon sisten, Orin pack, indesting and...

...performance with purpose, supportingthe companies that are solvd in the worls biggest challenges. And what wedo is we share stories, messages and advise with you know the main object,tise Olfyou know one creating awareness about Sustene, INBAC Investin, to shareinbest practice from the leaders in the industry and three inspire others inthe industry and Beyong to take action for a faster transition, and I alsoappreciate that what we are creating with my guest is of cray value forcurren and future leaders, as well as the Gan Bein parly invaluable recordfor Posperity, which IU K O oposterity. I should say which you know. I thinkthat there's not enough of it and I think the biggest lesson Y, I would saythat theres a few of them one, is that definitely you cannot doeverything on your own, but people are willing to help, especially on thiskind of group of individuals and...

...companies that are really trying topush the Boundarie so that we can do things in a better way in a moresustainable way. The second is something that obviously hat thin. Youlearn with time as well, but it's quite evident when you interoue to people tosee how long it took them to do what they're doing and to achieve somethingis that it takes time for people to understand concepts, something that Italk to a many people about and to take actions thereafter. So youneed, you know patient patience and consistency and if I did understand Iof lastly, if I do understand enough before I launche the podcastabout the complexity of the situation, te solutions and the collaborationrequired by all the state hoders hit became kind of little more clear, O howall the different parts play a role which rol they play. So as you listento the podcast yourself and I invite Edone to listen to a MP differentepisodes, you get to understand, you...

...know the different players at thedifferent levels of the investment world byt a the same time. How, thenthat relates to consumers, to the companies to policy makers, regulatorsEtca and I think that that was has been o now quite wonderful, altogether.Takeaway a lesson amazing. I think one of the key things that I learned fromdoing and helping you on your podcasting is this, especially withinthis impact spaces. There's such a white range of individuals and so manycompanies doing such such great things, and I mean you've interviewed a lot ofpeople and some of these people have been working in the. I guess in thesustainability in the impect space for a long time, and I think t's reallyfascinating how many different parts of the financial word is actually changingand taking action and moving things...
