Make better spending choices for people and the planet
Impact Score® shows you which companies are behaving well, and those you might want to avoid. So you can choose who you shop with and support businesses who treat their customers, employees, suppliers, communities and the environment fairly.
Your guide to sustainable, ethical living
9 out of 10 people want to live a sustainable lifestyle, but less than 2 in 10 are actively changing their behaviour. Because it’s hard work.
The Impact Score® app makes it easy for you. It measures how companies are behaving and gives them a score, personalised to what’s important to you. Like their CO2 emissions, whether they pay the real Living Wage, or if they pay their fair amount of UK tax.
Now you can make informed choices about who to shop with and which brands to buy from. And by using the app, your spending choices, combined with thousands of others, drives badly behaved companies to improve.
Measuring their impact
We partner with the Maths and Applied Sciences team at the University of Chester who developed weightings and formulas to transform the data into a single Impact Score® so you can easily see how a business is behaving and can compare them with similar companies. We measure:
Paying UK Tax
Gender Pay Gap
Real Living Wage
Fat Cat Pay Gap

While some businesses take this responsibility very seriously, others really don’t. Greenwashing is rife. Here are some of the reasons we created
