Our mission is simple: to ensure our portfolio organizations have the greatest possible impact. We consistently assess and measure their social and environmental performance with proprietary tools and best-practice standards to provide accountability to the communities we serve as well as to our stakeholders. We join our portfolio organizations on their learning journey to tap into the full impact potential of their solutions, while also reducing risks.

Impact process

LGT Venture Philanthropy considers the impact of its actions every step of the way. We identify the benefit that proposed solutions will have on people and the planet. We apply a framework of tools, standards and templates to due diligence for detailed analysis. We take independent research into consideration.

Together with the grantees, we identify impact KPIs and targets in the grant agreement. These are subject to transparent quarterly reporting, which designates effective methods and highlights room for improvement. In working with organizations, LGT Venture Philanthropy learns to jointly evaluate impact.
