Social Impact Assessment or CSR Impact Assessment is a systematic evaluation process based on statistical data sampling, to measure. the effectiveness of CSR projects and know to what extent objectives are met.

CSR Impact or Social impact can be measured on multiple dimensions caused due to the implementation of CSR projects. These dimensions can include health, culture, heritage, lifestyle, quality of life, community impacts, and many others. For certain projects, impacts on people can be by far the most important consideration. Adverse social impacts can reduce the intended benefits of a proposal, and can threaten its viability if they are severe enough.

In our social impact consulting process, we use this approach to evaluate the impacts of a proposal/project on individuals and communities, and to mitigate the adverse effects and enhance the positive effects. It also provides a framework to manage social change.

The social impact of any development project or responsible investment changes with the life cycle of the project i.e  during pre-comissioning, commissioning, operation and closure.
