The national Net Impact mission is to "use the powers of business to make a positive net social, environmental and economic impact."
Net Impact at Brandeis was founded in 2005 in conjunction with the Heller School for Social Policy and Management. The group is committed to meeting the national mission as well as the individual and collective goals of the Brandeis community. Net Impact at Brandeis partners with other clubs on campus and other chapters in the Boston area.
The Brandeis chapter took significant steps toward fulfilling these goals in the 2012 EMC2 Sustainability Report, a landmark annual publication that focused on long-term sustainable solutions for global businesses.
