Creating a Good Economy
We exist to promote the emergence of a Good Economy, one that works for everyone, both in the United Kingdom and around the world.
From strategy development to verification, The Good Economy helps organisations to define, measure, evaluate, report and verify impact investments that make a positive contribution to sustainable development.
Our impact services are designed to meet the growing investor demand and market expectation for greater confidence and credibility in impact creation and are underpinned by three ‘i’s - intentionality, integration and integrity.
Recognised as thought leaders, The Good Economy is the ‘go to’ firm for organisations looking to deliver on and report against their sustainable development mandate.
Making Impact Count
Research, strategic advice and impact measurement, management and verification services for organisations interested in making long-term social value creation integral to their business.
We help finance and business to play their part in solving major social problems. Dedicated to creating a fairer and more sustainable society, we use our social capital to convene disparate stakeholder groups to drive collaborative innovations for positive change.
We help our clients to understand, measure and report real-world social impact, manage impact risk and integrate impact considerations into decision-making and performance reporting.
TGE has extensive knowledge and experience and plays an active role in building the sustainable development ‘ecosystem’.
Known for our convening power, we believe that partnerships are critical to building a Good Economy and every organisation has a role to play. We are also members of a number of local and global impact investing aligned organisations and serve as the Secretariat for Sustainability for Housing. In addition, we partner across sectors and disciplines in various research and other collaboration projects.

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to The Good Economy team for all your great work. You really managed to get under the skin of Snowball’s IMM practice and the areas you have identified for improvement are incredibly valuable as we continue to learn and improve.
It was a pleasure working with The Good Economy. The team were a joy to work with. We knew it would be a challenge to take something that is very subjective and people-centred, and develop something that is objective and quantifiable, but the team’s dedication and passion helped us develop a bespoke social impact measurement framework is potentially ground-breaking for the industry.
The Good Economy always produce high-quality impact reports for us, and the discipline of having a six-monthly impact audit is driving us to keep maximising our impact.
The Good Economy’s advice has been thoughtful, practical and implementable. They constructively challenged us on all dimensions of impact, many of which we had not thought about before and have now implemented. We are extremely pleased with their work and advice.
The Good Economy has helped us ensure we can demonstrate each of our investments is achieving tangible and measurable social impact.
Working with The Good Economy has been a great experience. The insight and strategic advice they provided has played a key role in our plans to scale up our investment programme for creative businesses.
The Good Economy team’s thoughtful and insightful work helped shaped our plans for the new regional development agency and given us a valuable source of evidence on which to draw as we shape our future priorities.
The Threadneedle Social Bond Fund couldn’t have happened without The Good Economy’s commitment to social change and intellectual rigour in creating the social impact assessment methodology.
