We are in the Decade of Action - it is time to act to drive economic recovery and transformation to a sustainable business fabric.

At Impact Hub we believe in an economic model based on creating economic, natural and social capital in a sustainable way for all.  We want to capitalise our 15 years of experience around the world to act as catalysts in this transition, promoting entrepreneurship and social innovation.

Tangram is a programme to support the creation and development of businesses with impact, integrating sustainability and circularity to their business models and the Sustainable Development Goals to their value propositions.

Circular Economy _

Potentially the biggest revolution in the global economy in the last 250 years

Sustainable model of production and consumption based on 3 principles:

  1. Elimination of waste by design
  2. (Re)Efficient use of resources and energy
  3. Regeneration of natural systems

Radically moving away from the old linear model based on “take – use – throw away”, thus decoupling progress from natural resource use and environmental impact.


Sustainable Development Goals

17 global goals adopted by world leaders in 2015 to ensure prosperity for all: people and planet. The goals are to be achieved in the next 10 years.

17 integrated goals, which recognise how interventions in one area affect outcomes in other areas and how development must balance environmental, economic and social sustainability.

Creativity, knowledge, technology and financial resources from across society are needed to achieve the SDGs in each context.

Chinese: 七巧板; “seven boards of skill”, in reference to the qualities the game requires

Classic Chinese game made up of 7 set pieces (limited resources) with which you can form practically any shape; you just have to let your imagination run wild.

The pieces cannot overlap and you must use them all (no “waste”).

It improves concentration, memory and creativity.
