WHAT WE DO

Our Main Focus

Beyond Impact’s core investment thesis centers on sustainability as a pillar of risk management and economic valuation. Due to the heavy environmental impact, the use of animals is inherently unsustainable and alternatives need to be found and funded. Coinciding with this we are seeing an accelerating societal shift in favour of vegan, cruelty-free and plant-based alternatives, based on the environmental imperative, health concerns and compassion for animals.

As such, Beyond Impact targets significantly impactful companies which have positioned their products and services to meet this growing demand, favouring those with clear technological advantages and whose products outstrip the qualities of the animal-derived material they replace.

“We shall escape the absurdity of growing a whole chicken in order to eat the breast or wing, by growing these parts separately under a suitable medium. Synthetic food will, of course, also be used in the future. Nor need the pleasures of the table be banished. The new foods will from the outset be practically indistinguishable from the natural products, and any changes will be so gradual as to escape observation,”

SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL
