Provide information to stakeholders

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.  

That’s where reporting comes in. By measuring corporate social responsibility performance and reporting on social impact metrics, organisations can ensure that their business activities are positively impacting society and the wellbeing of their workforce, and communicate this impact with internal stakeholders and the outside world. 

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