It has become imperative for leading organisations to understand the impact of their activities and sustainability efforts on the broader ecosystem. Social Impact Assessment (SIA) – the process of analysing, monitoring and managing social issues- is vital to understanding the holistic impact of a company’s activities. SIA could, therefore, reduce risks, enhance decision-making and create value for communities.
This seminar is specially tailored to enable individuals and organisations learn how to conduct social impact assessments and report sustainability information using globally recognised frameworks.
