Social and environmental impact
A social impact can be considered through different perspectives, including improved economic conditions (salary increase, job creation), a better access to health (medicine, clean water, food security) and education.
An environmental impact is usually characterized by a capacity to protect the biodiversity, conserve the natural resources, prevent pollution and waste and a capacity to generate sustainable energy.
Thanks to statistics drawn up by the impact investment experts – such as the Impact Reporting & Investment Standards IRIS – we are able to assess the scope and effectiveness of our actions on the basis of quantified criteria.
In accordance with this assessment procedure, an impact report will be drawn up annually on each project.
