L'indice de Progrès Social

Une mesure globale du progrès

Le PIB est, depuis 80 ans, la norme pour mesurer le progrès économique d'un pays. En limitant la mesure de la croissance et de la compétitivité aux indicateurs économiques, le PIB fournit une image incomplète du progrès.

NOUVEAU : Rapport sur l'Indice de Progrès Social 2015

L'Indice de Progrès Social a été lancé le 9 avril 2015. Il mesure les résultats environnementaux et sociaux de 133 pays, couvrant 94 % de la population mondiale.

L'Indice de Progrès Social est complémentaire des indicateurs économiques comme le PIB. Il fournit une mesure plus globale de la performance du pays et contribue à favoriser une croissance plus durable qui est celle attendue par les entreprises et nécessaire à la construction d'une société prospère.

The Index

Developed in 2013, Social Progress Imperative teamed with leading experts across sectors to develop the Social Progress Index. It uses key social and environmental indicators captured across three dimensions of social progress:

  • Basic human needs (such as water, nutrition, and shelter)
  • Foundations of wellbeing (such as health, sustainability, and access to communications)
  • Opportunity (such as political freedoms, tolerance, and access to higher education)

By highlighting the most pressing issues that prevent progress, the Social Progress Index acts as a focal point for convening and platform building – bringing together the right players from different sectors to identify innovative solutions.

It is a practical guide for directing resources toward issues that can unlock this growth. For business, it is a necessary tool in the 21st century—guiding investment, informing social responsibility strategies, and better understanding the impact and purpose of business in society beyond profit—all key in attracting and retaining today’s talent who increasingly want to work for purpose-driven businesses.

Insights from this analysis – and the actions they ignite – have the power to shift thinking for the better. Countries will be able to drive sustainable, and faster, growth through increased collaborations, more effective policies, and focused funding.

“It is our hope that just as GDP is the de facto measure of economic growth, so too the Social Progress Index will gain recognition as the de facto measure of social progress".

Unlocking Real Growth: Social Progress and the G20

On the 15th and 16th of November, Australia played host to the annual G20 Summit. The G20 provided an opportunity for leaders to discuss global economic issues and shape the world's effort to restore growth. Yet, growth without social progress is an empty goal. Governments need to think beyond the usual macroeconomic levers to support social progress. Australia and other G20 countries can enhance economic growth through addressing these social problems which are burdensome to economic progress.

Deloitte Australia has used the Social Progress Index to identify where Australia compares less favorably with its peer countries and therefore present opportunities for governments, business, and the not-for-profit sector to work.
