Qu’est-ce que l’empreinte socio-économique ?
Every organisation has an economic impact on its territory: it employs employees, makes purchases from other companies and pays taxes.
Through its choices, the organisation contributes more or less to the economic development of the territory and the support of jobs. To prove its contribution to the development of the local fabric, an organisation can measure its socio-economic footprint, which breaks down into direct, indirect and induced impacts. Sometimes we also talk about an economic footprint or a local footprint.
For an organization, measuring its economic footprint provides a first approach to the value it creates in the region. It also makes it possible to identify the levers at its disposal to optimize and reinforce its impact on the territory.
Why measure the socio-economic footprint?
Measuring your socio-economic footprint allows you to:
Decrypt your activity
Identify areas for improvement
Demonstrate local commitment
Communicate and value
Integrate CSR issues
How to measure the socio-economic footprint?
The measurement of the socio-economic footprint takes place in 4 steps:
The framing of the project
The data collection
Calculation of your socio-economic footprint
Analysis and presentation of results
Going further with the broader socio-economic footprint measure
For example, a social entrepreneur will probably have a smaller local economic footprint than a tobacco company, yet at the scale of the territory its impact is more positive. Measuring the socio-economic footprint goes beyond the local economic footprint. By integrating the impact of business activities and CSR actions, the organization has a more global vision of the value it creates in the region.
