What is givvable?

Businesses are setting ambitious sustainable and social procurement targets, therefore, the supply chain plays a critical role.

The problem is, there’s no easy way to search suppliers across the full range of sustainability categories, and impacts driven by spending are rarely tracked. Businesses need an easy way to find, assess and track sustainable and social spending.

That’s givvable.com

Why we like givvable!

Whether you refer to the dynamic as ‘net zero’ or ESG or impact management the indisputable and increasingly recognised issue is that businesses, either big or small, need to change the way they think about their role in the world going forward. To be relevant to their clients and suppliers they need to take ownership for their footprint, their choices and how they position themselves in the broader community.

We believe that givvable has the capacity to educate and empower the commercial world. We also know Frances well from our time at J.P. Morgan and hold her in the highest regard.

Albeit early as an investment, there are clear signs of traction with large corporates and we are excited about the opportunity to present an offering to small business within a short-time frame.
