Social and community impact

Last updated: 3rd October 2023

At SLR, we have over 25 years’ experience working with our clients to maximise positive, or minimise negative, impacts on society. Working across private, public, international development funding and not for profit sectors, we support our clients across the globe to define, assess and manage their social impacts and performance for multiple audiences, from C-suite to local community.

Whether through global or local social impact strategies (addressing key areas such as Human Rights, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion or supply chain risks), focused community programmes and partnerships, or by innovating for social impact in direct business practices, operations, products, and services. We help our clients understand, measure, and improve their broader socio-economic and value chain impacts, from job creation and procurement to consumer health and well-being.

Supporting our clients in managing social performance to comply with international standards (Equator Principles, World Bank & IFC performance standards). Achieving the balance between project development and safeguarding of resilient and inclusive communities through our subject matter expertise in labour, gender, cultural heritage, indigenous peoples, community health & safety, sustainable livelihoods, resettlement and land acquisition. This includes robust stakeholder engagement throughout the project life cycle.

SLR can also provide clients with frameworks and practical management tools to enhance and authenticate their social and community impact efforts through B4SI: the global standard in measuring and managing corporate social impact, used by 200+ of the world’s leading companies to articulate and measure the positive impact they have in the world. The B4SI Frameworks form a robust measurement standard that any company can apply to understand the difference their contributions make to business and society through community investment, business innovation and social procurement.
