There is growing societal recognition that companies are accountable for their entire supply chain. That means investigating social impacts throughout the product life cycle is an important value driver – and an opportunity to support sustainable innovation. That is why PRé facilitates the Product Social Metrics Roundtable since 2013, in concert with market-leading companies. To help companies understand product social metrics and start applying them, we organize this training course focused on the Handbook for Product Social Impact Assessment.
The overall focus of this training is to get you going in the first case study, as ultimately the best way of learning and remembering is by doing. Therefore it is important to already define one or more case studies you would like to elaborate on after the training. After registration, we will send a template on which you can specify the basic ingredients of your case study, and we will support you if needed.
We will also send you the latest version of the Handbook, the Methodology Report and the Social Topics Report and will ask you to read at least the executive summaries as a preparation.
The training will be highly interactive and practical with room for your questions. After the course, you will receive 5 hours of consulting helpdesk support to get going with your case.
