Economic, Policy, and Social Impact

Economic policy and social impact is more important now than ever before because of the critical sustainability imperative that government is facing.

Increasingly thought leadership is including the topic of sustainability.  To measure the results of sustainability practices it is necessary to have a way to quantify economic, policy, and social impact. A critical ingredient in studies that take an evidence based approach in sustainability. Our clients use economic, business, and social impact analysis when they want to show the full value that a project, policy, or business brings to the economy or society.

The value can come from direct, indirect, induced, or catalytic impacts—from generating  jobs and economic growth to reducing crime and inequality. Our impact models calculate the economic, business, or social footprint of a project, policy, event, organization, or industry. We can assess these impacts on any geographic area, including local neighborhoods, cities, states, provinces, regions, countries, and the world.
