Accountability is important in Social Impact, making its measure critical for Individuals, teams and organisations associated with them. SYNE defines impact as the long-term positive change within individuals, communities and society resulting from the usage of products, services and activities of an organisation.
What We Do
SYNE transforms the way companies and organizations shape social change and impact. And we believe social impact not only builds brands but also serves as a fundamental business driver.
SYNE considers social impact work to be a competitive advantage. Quite often, corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts work as one-off, stand alone efforts and given secondary importance stifled by old paradigms. The usual business rules should not stop when it comes to CSR sustainability and corporate responsibility.
The SYNE method ensure that sustainability is embedded in the core strategy and strengthens business. SYNE helps focus on the enduring actions that will produce positive and valuable results across a full spectrum of critical sustainability issues from climate change to the development of sustainable food systems and participation in sustainable impact investing.
The increase in impact investing has led to an unprecedented focus on impact measurement to understand financial as well as and social return of investments.
Impact measurement is complex in practice, and varies in approach and rigor. The SYNE model provides impact investors a framework to communicate with the entrepreneur to understand their journey to the intended impact, underlying assumptions in their theory of change and marking the potential roadmaps on the path to driving impact. Investors can use this tool to assess regardless of agreeing with the under- lying assumptions of impact, and identify areas requiring further due diligence.
SYNE helps organisations through CSR Implementation across all stages – pre-assessment, Impact Assessments, Risk & Opportunity Analysis, Strategies & Policies and Action Planning.
