Social Impact Measurement (SIM) is an approach, a process of better understanding how much social, economic and environmental change occurred and can be attributed to an organization’s activities, interventions.
Through our activities we should bring the positive values (or reduce/eliminate the occurrence of negative ones) and support the change necessary to address the causes of people and environmental problems, to answer their needs.
But the fact that we do generate values and change should not satisfy us. In this time of unsustainable waste of resources, we should also ask ourselves whether we use resources for our activities in an optimal way – or better to say if we deliver the maximum value for the invested (money, time, knowledge etc.).
