Here at Humankind Investments, we take our socially responsible research seriously. Wherever we have data, we use it to try to calculate how companies impact humanity in a few steps.

We’d like to illustrate this process using a fictitious tech company that we’ll call "Giggle." Giggle produces robots that perform stand-up comedy acts for people to enjoy in the comfort of their own homes.
Our research team works to estimate the dollar value of each of these impacts. We then add up all of those numbers to create an estimate of Giggle’s direct Humankind Value.
We repeat this process again and again for all companies, updating and improving our model whenever we can include more or better information. We then weight companies in our portfolio based primarily on their total Humankind Value scores. Companies creating greater value for humanity are therefore given larger weights.
