A coin of 5 cent Australian dollar may not be able to let people to buy a bottle of drinking water in Taiwan. However, it could be enough money to give children 2-days’ clean drinking water in the under-developing countries. UNICEF and Qantas have created 5 Fund, a #ChangeForGood initiative that turns Australia’s most useless coins, into the most powerful change in the world. Money can represent a rich life. It can also represent saving people’s life and creating social impacts. How to measure the social value and help people to make right decisions have drew people’s attention in the world.
The way of measuring a corporate value is changing. In addition to making profit, people also pay attention to social impacts and social value created by a company. This year, Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) created new questions of “Impact measurement and valuation”, which accessed whether corporates developed “business program for social needs” and measured the social impacts. Calculating Social Return on Investment (SROI) is one of the way to demonstrate the value, which measures financial and non-financial value.
How can a company demonstrate “doing well by doing good” in social dimension and disclose in the CSR report is a key issue to Taiwan listed companies. Therefore, PwC Taiwan and Social Impact Institute of Taiwan invite Jeremy Nicholls, CEO of Social Value International and Social Value UK, to share about why social value matters, global trends, and how to use SROI for impact measurement and assessment. Eliza Li, PwC Sustainability Service Partner and the team will share how to use SROI to manage and initiate creative CSR activities and the trends for non-financial disclosure. Besides, ASUSTek will share the SROI report of “Computer Recycling and Education Project” in partnership with PwC Taiwan, which was assured by Social Value International in 2017. Far EasTone Telecommunications and Carrefour will share about social initiatives experience.
