Impact assessment from an ethical perspective

The CAE has developed a methodology that includes the ethical perspective as a cross-cutting pillar for evaluating the social impact of organisations.

Organisations are increasingly looking for ways to account for their contribution to society, especially those committed to objectives such as the fight against climate change or the 2030 Agenda.

Evaluating a company’s social impact makes it possible to establish cause-effect relationships between its activity and the changes that occur in its environment.

There are different types of impact evaluations. The Centre for Applied Ethics has developed a methodology that includes the ethical perspective as a cross-cutting pillar for evaluation.

This methodology allows organisations to measure or assess their impact on society and, in addition, to find key references on how to orient it towards the ethical purpose they have set for themselves. It is therefore a tool used in ethical adequacy processes.

What does the ethical perspective bring?

  • Including the ethical perspective contributes to overcoming the hegemony and limitations of econometric evaluations.
  • It encourages the involvement of stakeholders and others affected by the impact of organisational activities.
  • It is a proposal that also allows for the examination and validation of the different impact assessment processes that have been in place to date.
