Global impact. Measurable results.
First came the carbon footprint. With it came a new tool for measuring and improving the impact a business has on the planet. Now, as the world turns its eyes to the importance of social performance, SAI’s Social Fingerprint® program delivers a way to quantify this impact, too.
Public and private institutions are all looking for ways to measure and improve the social performance of the companies they work with – all while improving the lives of workers in the supply chains. And while different types of institutions have different needs in this area, SAI’s Social Fingerprint® Training Center has the tools and training necessary to help everyone succeed.
Now banks, investment groups, labor ministries, export and business development agencies, trade unions, community groups and governments alike can be part of making sure that higher regard is paid for the human capital of the world’s supply chains.
These days, investors are looking more and more at reputational risk and other types of non-financial risk. SAI’s Social Fingerprint® rating systems give investors a way to measure social performance inside a company or its supply chain. These measurements are not just good for helping the companies perform better internally, they become a signal to the world about how important social performance is to them. In turn, that translates into a new breed of performance-based indicators: A company’s Social Fingerprint®. We can help you decode these indicators to make more informed investment decisions in companies able to hit the triple bottom line.
Government and Inter-Governmental Agencies
SAI’s Social Fingerprint® program help companies measure and improve their social impact. These companies can help governments to enforce the rule of law, stabilize economies, improve competitive advantage and enhance the stability and welfare of its communities. Governments can help companies’ efforts to improve, by providing information and data, funding and resources, business incentives and policies We have years of experience in helping agencies design, implement, and evaluate effective programs to drive good corporate citizenship.
NGO’s and Trade Unions can use SAI’s Social Fingerprint® program to help companies measure and improve their social performance. The act of being involved with the process of rating itself gives a company more credibility. It’s a symbol of a company’s progress and commitment to change. Further, it helps give insights on the issues that affect workers’ lives, both in the workplace and their communities. And it helps evaluate how well a company’s program is working. Or not working. And what can be improved. In fact, some NGOs are now offering services related to monitoring, training and technical assistance.
