GA number: 101111120

The Social Impact Manager (SIM) initiative addresses the critical challenge of insufficient integration of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in business strategies. Despite a growing global consensus on the importance of CSR, with 87% of consumers expecting companies to operate sustainably, only 38% of businesses have established comprehensive CSR plans. This gap underscores a pressing need for a paradigm shift in how companies approach their social and environmental responsibilities. The SIM project aims to create a new managerial role that effectively integrates CSR into business models, ensuring companies contribute positively to societal and environmental well-being, in line with increasing stakeholder expectations.
The SIM project proposes a complementary and innovative approach to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), emphasising the social impact dimension of a company that intends to nurture and expand the link with its community of people and stakeholders (education providers–university and VET providers–, civil society and the entrepreneurial sector).
