Sustainably’s 3 impact platforms work together:

  • a consumer web and mobile app to track impact instantly and donate:

Individuals can have a positive impact everyday by rounding up their spare change every time they shop. We round up their cashless transactions, and donate their spare change to their chosen good cause. They can track their impact in Sustainably app and pause it or change it at any time. Giving with complete privacy, transparency and control.

  • a real-time social responsibility platform for brands to localise and personalise their impact: Brands can hyper-localize and personalize their CSR to increase value, visibility and impact by match donating with their customers and employees in real time.
  • And for charities: a new hassle-free way to fundraise and communicate impact in real time with their supporters.

Sustainably’s real time social responsibility platforms makes doing good integrated into daily life, rewarding, and fun and with total transparency and control. With Sustainably you can have an impact just by living your busy life!

Mother and daughter co-founders Loral and Eishel Quinn, are on a mission to create a huge positive impact locally and globally:

Loral (CEO) is one of the top 100 people in digital in the UK. Previously head of digital strategy and marketing for a FTSE100 investment company, she set up the global digital team and helped scale the business from 6 to 30 countries in 10 years.

Eishel (CPO) has a wealth of experience in ethical retail and a passion for all things design. She is responsible for the Sustainably brand and the UX – a multi award-winning product including best of show at Finovate and top 10 Virgin Startup.

Together they identified that consumers and businesses want to do good but, there is a lack of inspiration, giving is so fragmented across a multitude of disconnected platforms, making it impossible to track your impact and existing channels and methods make it difficult to even know where to start.

They wanted to create a technology-led solution, with a scalable business model, that would create serious impact – So together they created Sustainably.

Sustainably uses open banking and gamification at its core to create impact. The technology works seamlessly with cashless transactions – turning contactless and card payments into impact every day.

Unlike other giving platforms, Sustainably takes zero fees from individual and corporate donations.

Sustainably charges platform usage fees to its business customers who want to match donate with their customers and employees in real time, and see the impact of their brand and their communities.

The core team includes fintech, ethical retail, digital strategy and data science expertise.  Our advisory board includes the founder of a unicorn, fintech and tech company founders, charity leaders, and business development expertise.
