Measuring the Impact of Corporate Social Investments

Social change is inherently difficult to capture, so many companies rely on reporting simple output metrics and anecdotal stories to share their social commitments and activities. However, there is growing interest among corporate social investors to understand and demonstrate the actual deeper impact of the programs they support—to show how their investments are creating long-lasting and meaningful social value.

The Research Working Group on Measuring the Impact of Corporate Social Investments set out to examine these and other challenges related to measuring the impact of corporate social investments, and to offer promising practices and recommendations that would meet their needs and advance the field overall.
