With the intensifying global focus on social issues such as human rights, diversity, privacy, and gender equality, as well as increased scrutiny from consumers regarding organisations’ social values, it’s just as important to measure social impact as it is to measure environmental impact.
It’s easy for organisations to say they care, and that they’re changing for the better. But many will set lofty goals without taking the necessary actions to make them a reality.

But measuring social impact can be tricky, with many different data points covering many different topics. Luckily, Rio makes it easy.
