To answer this question, BCtA works with our inclusive businesses to help define and measure social and environmental performance of their initiatives. To date, BCtA has worked with over 20 inclusive businesses in health, agriculture, education, energy and housing sectors to collect social and operational performance data using mobile technology. We aim to support our members scale their effort through business model innovation and external communications by having better access to customer and market insights.
BIMS helps our inclusive business members conduct ongoing measurement of social impact along with financial and operational performance. BIMS provides technical expertise and technology tools to design and implement survey-based data collection from the field through employees, customers and other stakeholders.
It has been one year since the world agreed on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). So how are we accounting for businesses’ contribution to the Global Goals?
BCtA in partnership with GRI conducted a series of consultations this year with governments and businesses to get the latest view on this question.
Measuring Impact is a joint publication from Business Call to Action (BCtA) and GRI, to share early learnings on private sector support of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It examines how companies measure their contribution to the SDGs through impact measurement and sustainability reporting, and explores how governments consider the business contribution to the SDGs. The report draws on consultations with 32 companies and 19 governments. Join our discussion on social media using #Measure4SDGs.
