Assess and Measure Social Impact
All organisations, whatever they do, have impacts – negative and positive, inadvertent or intended.
We help non-profits, business, charitable and philanthropic investors and public sector agencies understand the social impacts they create, and improve their capacity to produce the impacts they desire of their projects, initiatives and decisions.
What is 'Social Impact'?
It is a valuable tool that helps organisations contribute to sustainable development and social change. It provides ways for anyone to identify, analyse, measure and manage the intended and inadvertent impacts of their actions and initiatives on people.
Social Impact Assessment (SIA) is a traditional practice, established internationally since the 1970s as an aspect of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). In New Zealand, it is currently a legal requirement for developments covered by the Resource Management Act (1991).
