Impact Measurement

How can we measure the social impact of an initiative, an organisation or a company? “Impact is what drives the people and organisations in impact investing and social finance, and distinguishes them from conventional investors and businesses. But, arguably, unless you are actively measuring your impact, you are not operating or managing in a way that fully reflects your social mission and goals” (Karim Harji, Programme Director, Oxford Impact Measurement Programme)
