About 360impact

With Véronique Veyrassat based in Cape Town and Sandra Wirth in Lausanne, we see the world from different perspectives while aiming at the same goals.

360impact

360impact enables the pooling of skills, networks and knowledge around common values and objectives: a sustainable world.

Early 2018, we decided to scale up Véronique’s initiative of 360impact to help achieve global impact for every organization.

We met in 2002 as we worked together at the International Committee of the Red Cross. Coming both from the private sector, we engaged in corporate partnerships. The Global Compact had just been formed and we lead the initiative of what became the ICRC Corporate Support Group. Over time we became friends. Yet, we still discussed a lot the many aspects of sustainable development and how to make it happen.
