Social Impact

Can Social Impact Management help achieve:
A sustainable and just society?
A society in which divergent values can thrive and diverse choices are respected?
A society that guarantees the dignity of those who have life difficulties?

The rapid spread of the new coronavirus infection, which no one could have predicted just a year ago, is forcing us and the whole world to make transformative changes. One of these changes is the shift to a new type of capitalism; from shareholder capitalism to stakeholder capitalism. We need to consider and appreciate a variety of social and environmental values that cannot be measured by conventional monetary values, and work to ensure that these values are produced in an optimal manner in our business and activities, with a result that these new values flow freely, and are reinforced and cherished in society.
How can social impact management contribute to this transformation? What can we glimpse from the latest global trends, growing practice in Japan in the private, non-profit, and government sectors, and the development of new standards and frameworks? We will introduce and discuss various aspects of the social impact management in practice and draw up the future we are aiming for.

Opening Panel: Why Social Impact Now? - Focusing on Social Impact from a Global Perspective

Whether it is widening disparities or climate change, global and domestic issues are becoming more serious and challenging. At the same time, momentum is building toward the development of a sustainable society, where the role of the private sector is gaining attention. Our question is why focus on social impact, and what kind of economy and society is envisioned by promoting social impact? How can we measure social values, which cannot be measured by current economic yardstick? We will open the Social Impact Day with these questions and with an invitation to join in this global conversation.

Using Social Impact Management in the Community

Thus far, social impact measurement was mainly practiced by non-profit organizations in urban areas, but with the launch of the Act on the Utilization of Dormant Deposits, it is now attracting attention from the nonprofits throughout Japan, as it is mandated in the Act. However, its management and utilization are still in the process of development. In this session, we will invite practitioners who are already working on social impact measurement and management in their local communities to discuss how to effectively use them in the community and regional initiatives and what issues need to be addressed in the development and dissemination of this approach.

International Trends in Sustainability Disclosure - Harmonization of GRI, SASB, IIRC, CDP and CDSB

Many international frameworks and standards have been proposed for the disclosure of non-financial information and about social and environmental aspects of company operations. In recent years, they have received attention as ways of framing measurement metrics in impact management. In September 2020, the leading frameworks and standard-setting bodies released a joint statement, while the IFRS Foundation which governs the International Accounting Standards Board proposed the establishment of a new Sustainability Standards Board, and in November, the IIRC and SASB announced their merger plan. In this session, we invite experts who are closely watching and working on these trends to discuss where non-financial information disclosure is headed.
