Discover & Share Innovation. Idea Street is an online ideas-management platform that encourages employees to share their innovative ideas for change with a community of likeminded colleagues, and work with those colleagues to help make their ideas a reality. Instead of submitting an idea to a closed suggestion box, like a typical staff suggestion scheme, Idea Street puts ideas out in the open, so that other people within an organization can vote and comment on the suggestions of others. In this way ideas can be refined by the collective expertise within the community and the most promising suggestions can be brought to the attention of relevant decision makers. Idea Street encourages employees of all grades, roles and locations across an organisation to take part in what becomes essentially a decentralised innovation process.

Staff are free to submit ideas on anything that may improve their day to day working lives, how their organization operates or serves its customers, stakeholders or suppliers.

But what is “Impact Investing”? At the most strategic level, impact investing is based on the idea that philanthropy and government intervention alone cannot solve the primary challenges that the globe faces. Specifically, an Impact Investment seeks financial return as well as measurable environmental, social or governance value (ESG). As the developing world consumes more energy, from where will it come? As populations continue to rise, how will we feed ourselves? There are two broad groups of impact investors: “Financial First” investors who commit capital with a minimum expected financial return, and “Impact First” investors who commit capital with a minimum expected ESG return.
