Social impact evaluation as a risk management tool for business 

Social and environmental influences, such as pollution and inequalities are externalities from business operation. Apparently, the influences will not affect operation profit of businesses, but they can be internalized in long term via penalties, changes of regulations, losses of customer loyalties and etc.

Social impact assessment (SIA) is a process to measure and quantify these kinds of influences. It has long been used by foreign government in policy formulation and by social services providers in project evaluation. Leading accounting firms have also developed their own frameworks in SIA, such as True Value Model by KPMG and Total Impact Measurement and Management by PwC. The frameworks can help businesses leaders to understand their influences created to the society and environment, so as to mitigating their long term risks.
