About this event

Companies are struggling to identify fit-for-purpose approaches to integrating social measurement, management and valuation within their organizations. Many tools exist and more are emerging; however, they’re based on different assumptions, offer different functionalities, suit different purposes, and increasingly compete for uptake.

In an effort to address this gap, WBCSD has developed a Social Capital Protocol (www.social-
capital.org), a harmonized approach for businesses to measure and value their interactions with
society. The Protocol aims to clarify best practices, boost the positive impacts of business, and
improve business credibility by integrating the consideration of social impacts and dependencies
into performance management and decision-making.

Please join us in this roundtable to learn more about how businesses can:

  • Integrate socio-economic impact measurement into business performance
    management and reporting
  • Use socio-economic impact measurement to drive more effective
    collaboration between business, government, and civil society
