Who are we?

Our Mission

The origins of impak

An entrepreneur fuelled by a passion for technology, a sustainable development activist and precious, expert allies from complementary backgrounds. Add to that our growing, general sense of urgency in the face of immense global issues, and some major challenges in between, and we end up with an inspired team that took the bull by the horns. We decided to do our part. A little like all entrepreneurs who combine dreams and responsibilities.

The impak action

These entrepreneurs know that climate change affects everyone, and that social inequalities have never been greater. So they take action, like your local eco-friendly and zero waste café, offering solutions that also enable us to do our part. At impak, this is our mission. To create and serve a community surrounded by all these beautiful people, committed entrepreneurs and consumactors, to facilitate and reward responsible consumption through innovative and transparent technologies.

Imagine if, every day, our expenses had a positive impact on the environment or society. Especially when you know how difficult it can be to make the right choices and encourage responsible businesses. Today, being a consumactor involves more than just good intentions, and we experience this conundrum daily. Millions of us relate to this situation, wanting to encourage growing small and large companies that have a positive impact, led by entrepreneurs who accomplish their dreams and ideas to help solve collective challenges in their own way.

After a year of hard work with our passionate team of designers, copywriters and impact specialists, we created impak, the first app to reward and simplify responsible consumption. It allows users to find responsible businesses nearby, classified according to their needs and criteria. Using breakthrough technology, we want to revolutionnize the whole responsible consumption experience.

Our community, our strength

Together, we are the impak'tors. Accompanied by a community of nearly 6,000 citizens, and tens of thousands of businesses and organizations, we plan to make a positive impact through every act of consumption.

We need you all, consumactors, because it's only together that we will build a major responsible consumption movement.

At the very beginning, there's this dream. Will you join us in making this dream come true?

The success of impak depends entirely in your engagement.

Tomorrow's entrepreneurs, you are our reason for being. Create your impak profile. Invite your clients and partners to create theirs. And above all, share your ideas with us. Let's co-create to build an app that best fits your needs.

Citizens, be the change biofuel. Create your user account and spread the news to your friends. And above all, invite your favourite responsible businesses to join the impak community!

Together, let's create the impak movement!
