The concept of the smart city often revolves around the idea of what the infrastructure can do for the community, but the idea of a social impact economy focuses on the the reverse. The PIPs (Positive Impact Points) platform capitalizes on the latter by creating a points system that rewards people for making better life choices that affect not only personal health, but also the planet and their community.

PIPs not only rewards, it also records. By quantifying the efforts of the user, the platform clearly shows how much stronger the social impact economy is becoming in a particular area. Whether that means residents are switching to green energy, shopping responsibly, driving safely or volunteering, there are a multitude of ways to make a difference and to earn Positive Impact Points.
