Social & Community Impact

Maximising positive societal impact


Businesses play an integral role in society and carry a unique set of relationships and responsibilities to a wide range of stakeholders. The changing nature of these relationships and the social issues that companies and their stakeholders face have a direct impact on a company’s ability to create and sustain value.

We work with companies to create, implement and measure social and community impact strategies. Our approach to impact measurement is rooted in our long track record for best practice impact measurement via B4SI – the global standard for measuring corporate community investment. We help our clients understand, measure and improve their broader socio-economic and value chain impacts beyond community investment, from job creation and procurement to consumer health and well-being.
