Here's their blurb:

It's no longer enough to pursue social progress or commercial growth. In fact, we don't believe you can have one without the other. When you have both, that's what we call "Positive Impact".

For the past 50 years, we’ve been helping our clients to see the world as interconnected – by formulating strategies, building partnerships, and implementing programmes that have a lasting social and financial impact.

The future demands new thinking, new approaches, and new solutions. With a global network operating in over 90 countries, we believe in a better world, and we work to make it possible.

Governments, corporations, and investors need to work together with communities and civil society, and we have over 50 years of experience working with each.

Palladium helps leaders increase their bottom line through sustainable and profitable business strategies. Your business operates in a complex ecosystem, and the only way to ensure long-term success is by linking social and financial results. We work at the intersection of commercial growth and social progress, because we know that working toward the greater good creates the greatest opportunity.

Palladium is a leading implementer of international development programmes. Working in over 90 countries and across a broad range of sectors, we offer donor agencies a balance of global scale and in-house technical expertise. Aid is a critical component of our shared pursuit of the Sustainable Development Goals, and we bring our knowledge of the private sector to bear in designing solutions that use aid to spark lasting social and economic development.

Palladium works with governments around the world to make transformational change possible across regions and countries. We combine the rigour of private sector strategy execution with our deep understanding of development fundamentals to create more efficient governments and lasting social progress.
