Social impact: a business case for transformation

How can we measure the social impact of a community transformation?

How can we align real estate and business with social purpose and building healthy communities?

We developed a powerful tool: a double-bottom line business case that measures and aligns the benefits for business (real estate, tourism, attracting companies) with concrete, measurable indicators of social impact that can become the unifying targets of the entire project:

  • Sustainable jobs creation (direct and indirect)

  • Reduction in health and crime direct and indirect costs

  • Stable population growth

  • Social mobility - families and individuals that move up in their income levels

  • Human capital: education, workforce skills and employability

  • Reduction in "anti-social" behavior costs (incarceration, crime, vandalism, population flight)
