PRe on Social Impact Assessment at SB London

 

Bringing together an international community of learning and action, PRe is excited to share its Sustainability expertise with brands looking to build a flourishing future for themselves and the world. Last year, hundreds of sustainable innovation leaders such as Unilever, Adidas, Coca-Cola, Kingfisher, Philips took part. We hope to see you in London on November 18-19.

 

Social Sustainability?

Most sustainability programs and methodologies have focused on measuring and managing environmental impacts. Social Sustainability measures how a company’s business practices impact the lives of those who work for them, those they serve, and those in the community. Sustainable innovation requires social sustainability, and it’s becoming an increasingly important metric for many industries. And once again, PRe is at the forefront of helping guide the development of this key dimension of sustainability assessment on a global scale.

PRe is a founding and participating member of a number of global initiatives to develop practical, business-friendly tools for measuring and managing Social Sustainability impacts. PRe co-developed the social impact assessment in PROSUITE, an EU-led consortium whose methodology assesses the sustainability of new technologies. PRe also founded the Social Pioneers Roundtable, whose goal is to spur broad adoption of a single, business-friendly Social Sustainability methodology.

 

How Can Social Sustainability Make a Difference in My Business?

PRe is creating business value for some of the world’s leading companies by helping them develop and implement practical Social Sustainability tools and methodologies. Some of our customers in this area include:

  • DSM, one of the worlds largest chemical companies that wanted to develop a lifecycle-oriented framework for Social Sustainability;
  • the Sustainable Apparel Coalition, which is dedicated to reducing the social and environmental impacts of apparel and footwear products across the globe; and
  • a U.S.-based meat industry association that wanted to measure the current and historical social impacts of their goods and services.
