Socio-Economic Reporting

Assess your company’s positive socio-economic impact 


Saying you’re a sustainable business isn’t enough anymore: you have to prove it. Increasingly, corporations are looking to third parties to quantify their social and economic impact. For example, the GRI reporting standards lists identifying your proportion of spending on local suppliers and significant indirect economic impacts are material reporting topics.

Measure the economic and social impact of your organization’s activities and funded activities with an independent analysis from sustainability experts.  

Uncover your invisible impact  

Sustainalytics’ socio-economic impact report helps organizations gain deeper insight into the visible and hidden impact of their spending, from supply chain disbursements and operations to corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities.
