A social impact assessment is a preliminary or retrospective complex analysis of the impact of a company, programme, project or sector on society, based on quantitative and qualitative (e.g. survey interviews, focus groups) research and analysis methods.

In accordance with the objectives of the engagement and the nature of the client’s activities, the analysis may cover the following areas among others:

  • Some key indicators of quality of life (e.g. employment status and intensity, income status, health);
  • Evolution of access to social goods and public services (e.g. road infrastructure, education);
  • The situation of disadvantaged social groups, equal opportunities.

The True Value methodology developed by KPMG provides a stable framework for understanding the impact a company has on society, and how it can create greater social value. The methodology has been successfully applied in a number of sectors and countries, such as the Netherlands and Sweden.
