Anna Murphy – Associate
Anna is an impact consultant specialising in the Sustainable Development Goals, Future Fit Business Benchmark and B Corp certification.
Her background lies in the impact investing space, where, with a project to build a stock exchange for issuers committed to positive social and environmental impact, she developed a deep understanding of impact measurement and management standards, tools and frameworks. After writing the impact reporting requirements and supporting various companies through their impact reporting journey, she decided to shift her focus more fully from research to engaging, inspiring and empowering organisation leaders to contribute positively to social and environmental solutions.
Anna’s interest in finance and business for change stems from her time with Baillie Gifford, where she researched blockchain and transparency in business, and learnt about impact investing for the first time.
Anna also founded the Impact Economy Book Club, a growing community exploring how economics, business and finance can drive system change.
Anna’s LinkedIn profile can be found here.
We also work with a close network of carefully picked partners who we believe to the best impact practitioners in the market. These alliances give us scale and reach across continents, sectors and sizes allowing us, collectively, to offer the expertise and capacity of a much larger agency.
Our impact advisory ‘consortium’ has considerable experience both in house and in consultancy roles with companies ranging from Unilever, Mars and Danone to Pukka, innocent and Interface.
