Shell Foundation


Product : Amp Impact


Location : Maharashtra


Project Description

Vera worked closely with Shell Foundation to understand their needs and implemented Amp Impact to help the foundation strengthen its portfolio management and easily understand its grantees’ social ROI on the Salesforce Platform. The “Enterprise Hub,” as Shell Foundation calls it, uses out-of-the-box Amp Impact functionality combined with a Salesforce Community to enable enterprises to report quantitatively and qualitatively to the Foundation, with streamlined portfolio analysis on key performance indicators through dashboards. It also allows Shell Foundation to create and assign enterprise assessments using Amp Impact’s narrative template functionality.


Like many grant-makers, Shell Foundation’s impact measurement approach relied heavily on documents and spreadsheets, leading to a host of pain points across data entry, indicator management, benchmarking, and performance tracking. Shell Foundation needed a standard, yet flexible, a system that could track portfolio enterprises across geographies, focus areas, themes, and stages of growth, measure grant-specific indicators, and report on progress over time. Vera Solutions' teams implemented a system that simplified their processes and a user-friendly grantee portal ensured that accurate, timely, and robust data was entered. 


Using Amp Impact to monitor social and environmental reporting for 50+ companies; as of December 2018, Shell Foundation’s grants had created 209k jobs, improved the livelihoods of 124M people, and reduced 25.1M tonnes of CO2.
