Net Impact

Our Mission

Net Impact's mission is to inspire, educate, and equip individuals to use the power of business to create a more socially and environmentally sustainable world. As a member of Net Impact you enlarge your professional network with other like-minded individuals who have demonstrated their commitment to corporate social responsibility. Our events and professional development help our members put their beliefs into action through sustainability efforts, leading to increased sustainability job opportunities after graduation. Our consulting projects also give you the chance to experience the world of management consulting, along with industry guidance from our partner KPMG. Consulting Projects allow students to explore the consulting world, gaining a better understanding of issues facing the community, and applying business acumen to help these organizations prosper. Net Impact gives students the opportunity to make a meaningful social and environmentally sustainable impact in their community. Relationships from Net Impact are not only with other students but also with our academic community, and the even larger Edmonton community.
