We are an internationally accredited impact advisory firm, offering Impact Director services to provide guidance to proactively manage the socio-economic and environmental impact and performance of both for-purpose and for-profit companies in alignment with local standards and regulation.
Indeed, in order for companies to endure and thrive in the current climate as well as secure long-term growth and market-share, business strategies need to integrate activities such as corporate responsibility, corporate social investment, new value creation and product development, and enterprise development as part of their overall business agenda and objectives.
With the growing importance of such considerations and the need to employ proactive measures to achieve success and manage impact performance, board composition equally can derive significant value from the appointment of appropriately skilled and experienced directors to manage and/ or oversee the impact performance and measurement of the company. A specifically designated role to fulfill this function is valuable for signifying and ensuring commitment to proactive management of socio-economic and environmental responsibilities. This capacity may be fulfilled in an executive or non-executive role, depending on the nature and requirements of the business.
