Organizations should footnote details on specific targets, timeframes for accomplishing these targets, and how results will be measured for these targets. See usage guidance for further information.

Usage Guidance

  • Social and/or environmental targets are typically consistent with the organization's mission, and are specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound. Metrics can be used to measure progress towards these goals.
  • This metric may be used in conjunction with Social Impact Objectives (OD6247) and/or Environmental Impact Objectives (OD4108). For example, an organization can have a Social Impact Objective of providing access to clean water and sanitation, specific targets around the amount of total clean water provided, and the number of individuals it is provided to.
  • Organizations are also encouraged to report this metric in conjunction with Social and Environmental Performance Reporting (OI4732) and Social and Environmental Performance Risk Assessment (OI9106).
