Impakter consists of an online magazine and an investment platform and was founded by Michele Bonanno di Linguaglossa in 2014. The website is noted for its articles which are written by leading sustainability experts and support users to live a more sustainable lifestyle.[1]


Michele Bonanno, a graduate of Reading University, worked for several years as a manager at St. James's Place and launched several startups in London before founding Impakter.com as a platform for news covering political and social issues of concern to the younger generations.[1][2]

The Impakter magazine is owned by Impakter Limited and went online in Spring 2014, publishing articles mainly written by United Nations managers and international aid experts. Today, Impakter magazine is produced by a wide range of contributors, from startup founders to experts and celebrities in sustainability, assisted by a professional team of editors, designers and video producers. Impakter gathered public attention after the launch of a series focusing on the Sustainable Development Goals [3] in 2015 which featured various notable authors such as Alaa Murabit, Alicia Barcena Ibarra, Anne-Birgitte Albrectsen, Tawakkol Karman, José Graziano Da Silva[4] and Mathis Wackernagel. More than 150 authors have contributed in the years between 2014 and 2018 including Roya Mahboob, Frank Jensen, Inger Andersen, London Breed, Nada al-Nashif, Paul Rice, Irina Bokova, Vytenis Andriukaitis, Richard Full and Safeena Husain.

In April 2019, Impakter magazine gained its first sister publication in Italy. Impakter Italia was launched by a team of journalists led by Luca Ajroldi.

In May 2019 Impakter released a new website called ImpakterUP. The website is set to assist companies and startups focused on one or more SDGs to match with like minded investors.
