Product Social Impact Forum 2017
Creating value from understanding Social Impacts in the Life Cycle of your products
A group of 11 industry leading companies joined efforts to create a pragmatic methodology that is feasible, understandable and applicable for different sectors. This approach for Social Product Assessment was applied on several real case studies.
We invite you to join and to contribute to this important process, and get a day of interaction with your peers, which will also be very interested to hear your story, your challenges and successes.
Product Social Impact Assessment helps companies to identify the social impacts throughout the life cycle of a product or service. The method supports the identification of social hotspots and improvement opportunities, including risks in supply chains, production, use phase and end of life. The method also allows companies to identify both the negative and the positive impacts, which is the basis for strengthening the positive impacts and better managing the negative impacts. In this way, Product Social Impact Assessment can be a business driver and a source of inspiration for product innovation.
