Social Impact

Measuring and maximising social impact

Being able to measure and articulate social impact in a confident and rigorous manner is a powerful asset to organisations. It can help to unlock new sources of funding and investment, promote internal engagement and alignment, and open doors to new partnerships and collaboration.

  • Align corporate purpose, projects or programmes to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
  • Design impact assessment frameworks and select impact metrics
  • Evaluate and assess the social impact of projects, programmes and portfolios
