Impact, a driver of value creation



The COVID-19 crisis has highlighted the impact of human activity on the environment, and the unsustainability of certain models of societal development. It thus highlights the urgent need to change our habits and establish new ways of operating. In this context, how can businesses adapt ?

For our analysts, companies must act and rethink a “new reasonable” that can no longer be limited to financial value. More than ever, they must integrate the key intangible assets of customer capital, talent capital, ecosystem, infrastructure, and social and environmental impact.

However, there is no uniform definition and a common framework around impact.

Companies of all sizes have the same questions when they want to integrate the impact into their strategy:

  • Can all companies have an “impact approach”?
  • How can they define, measure and manage their impact?
  • What are the implications of the COVID-19 crisis on their corporate responsibility?

In this study by Fabernovel and France Digitale you will discover our analysis of different approaches to impact - ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) or Impact by design and how these impact strategies create value. Here you’ll also find a concrete methodology to implement an action plan to define, integrate and manage your impact with the right indicators.

Study plan

  1. Impact, a strategic pillar of long term value.
  2. Impact: which approach should companies take?
  3. Covid-19, an impact catalyst?

Study excerpt

With this impact strategy, companies can attract and retain customers who are looking for transparency and quality but also talents in search of meaning in their work. They strengthen their infrastructure to allow better adaptability to current and emerging risks, and improve the balance of their entire ecosystem for a more sustainable economy.
