Our aim is to ensure that all stakeholders benefit from our investments while minimizing ecological impact. Examples of positive social performance that we aim to create through our ventures are shown below.
We are using as a base the “Lean Data” approach developed by Acumen to monitor and manage our social impact.
We capture the following key outcomes throughout our ventures to both monitor our impact but also to use it as a management tool to improve our services:
- Changes in income and quality of life of the farmers and their families
- Changes in the farmers’ capability/knowhow through training and education
- Changes in productivity
Our ventures collect, monitor and report selected output parameters that are intended to serve as proxies for outcomes:
- Some examples: number of farmers reached, number of trainings conducted and number of jobs created
Baseline and impact surveys
We have started to conduct baseline and lean impact surveys for all of our ventures.
