What Echo Impact Exchange is, and what it isn’t

Echo is the world’s first impact exchange. A groundbreaking idea, which needs some clarification.


What Echo Impact Exchange is, and what it isn’t

Once Echo goes live, the world will have it’s first impact exchange. Let us talk a bit about what an impact exchange is, and what it isn’t.

What Echo is

  • – on Echo, you rate companies’ social impact. You do so by buying the immies (= “impact certificates”) of the good companies and by selling those of the baddies.
  • – on Echo, the social impact of companies gets measured. It’s simply the price of a company’s immies. One single and easily comparable number (unlike ESG ratings).
  • – The currency in which we measure impact is Ǝ (= “echoes”). You can get echoes by participating in all kinds of community activities (like Onboarding new companies) on Echo.
  • – on Echo, it is you who get to say which companies have real impact. We propose an open-to-all trading system instead of backroom ESG-analyses by “experts” on values.
  • – on Echo, you trade each company’s impact value rather than its equity value

What Echo isn’t

  • – an immie is not a share. An immie does not grant you any rights whatsoever as regards the company in question
  • – Echo is not a platform for direct impact investment. Rather, your trading helps separating the good from the bad companies
  • – an immie is not issued by the company in question. It is Echo who issues the immies.

Why do we do all of this?

  • – Trading on Echo helps to identify the true corporate impact champions. We influence corporate behavior, because nobody can hide any longer.
  • – With the information Echo provides, money can reliably be invested where the impact is.
