Toolbox for Return on Impact

Proprietary toolbox and a unique culture

Trill Impact was founded to be a thought leader and force for positive change, aiming for Real Returns and Lasting Impact. From a practical perspective, this means that our strategy, processes and culture are designed to help address societal and environmental challenges in our markets. To seek efficient and successful operation we leverage our Return on Impact Toolbox, including what we consider best practice cases, tools and professional networks, combined with our impact mindset.

The Toolbox consists of four dimensions and we seek to create tailored solutions for each company and situation.

As a business owner...

  • How do you win your customers with a compelling impact value proposition
  • How do you manage your operation most efficiently and sustainably?
  • How do you track your business to improve?
  • How do you recruit and retain the best team? Is an impactful strategy and a responsible owner critical when competing for talents?

The Toolbox is constantly evolving to include the latest know-how of the Trill Impact team and our network.
