About Us

Our Mission
To mobilize a new generation to use their careers to drive transformational change in their workplace and the world.
How did Net Impact Originate?
Twenty years ago, Net Impact started as a small network of MBA students who wanted to make a difference. They believed business could be a force for good, a radical idea at the time.
Thanks to their pioneering efforts over the last two decades along with others who shared their values, sustainability in business has moved from the fringe, to a trend, to the mainstream.
Fast forward to today.
We are a global community of student and professional leaders working within and beyond business to tackle the world’s toughest problems. Every day, we put our values to work for good — on campus, in our communities, and throughout our careers.
What does 'Net Impact' mean?
Through our careers, we make a net impact that transforms our lives, our organizations, and the world. One day, the most common question a young person will ask is: “What is your net impact?”


There is a profound interest in moving towards more sustainable ways of living. Corporations are beginning to facilitate the change needed.
