CSR, Impact & Reporting
We help businesses and social sector organizations measure what matters, and showcase their impact.
Every day, we help leaders to think more deeply about their impact on local communities, on society more broadly, and what to do about it.
If you lead an organization—a business, a non-profit, or a social enterprise—you’ve almost certainly been asked to talk about the impact you’re having on people and the planet. As society has come to expect sustainable behaviour, and as more and more leaders are embedding social purpose in their organizational strategy, corporate social responsibility, impact measurement, and reporting are new organizational requirements.
As you define your social responsibility, and ask how you can best engage your stakeholders to help achieve your mission, we’ll help you decide what to measure, and how to present the right insights to decision-makers and influencers.
Corporate Social Returns
Whether you’re making cautious investments in a corporate social responsibility program for the first time or you’re an early adopter at the cutting edge of social innovation, there are myriad opportunities to show leadership in your company, community and industry.
How should you prioritize CSR activities, policies and investments?
It’s not a simple question. But it’s easier once you identify the best practices, tools and strategies in each of three key dimensions of corporate social responsibility:
- Materiality: To what extent do you recognize the corporate responsibility issues that are relevant to your business—that have ‘material’ impacts? Have you identified and engaged stakeholders on these issues?
- Communicating CSR: How refined is your description of your CSR approach? And related activities? Inside and outside your company?
- Your Approach to Change: Do you aim to make incremental changes or to disrupt your enterprise or your industry?
On top of these three dimensions of CSR, we build strategies for our clients to move along a continuum of CSR—from the first, experimental steps of a dedicated intrapreneur or leader, to transformational approaches that engage directly with complex and systemic social challenges.
Wherever your organization stands on the spectrum, you’re in good company with Junxion.
Impact Reporting Tools & Frameworks
We’re here to help you define the measurements that matter, and develop insightful, actionable reports for your management and stakeholders. We’re often asked whether reporting on impact is worth the effort. Will it take more effort than you can manage? Do you have ready access to the right information? Are you able to assess your performance against a widely accepted set of standards?
We shared our perspective on these questions when we published our inaugural impact report at Junxion. In short, reporting promotes transparency, which in turn invites collaboration on issues of importance both to your organization and its stakeholders.
We use a number of frameworks and tools….
Global Reporting Initiative
The world’s leading sustainability reporting framework.
GRI is an international independent organization that helps businesses, governments and other organizations understand and communicate the impact of business on critical sustainability issues such as climate change, human rights, corruption and many others.
Junxion is a Gold Member of GRI, and helped support the development of the current G4 Guidelines, the global benchmark in corporate sustainability reporting.
