Global legal business, DWF, has demonstrated its ongoing commitment to CSR by funding community projects worth thousands through its charitable foundation and analysing societal value through a bespoke social impact reporting tool.
DWF is now working with Impact Reporting, a CSR reporting tool which streamlines the way organisations can capture and monitor activity that has social value or environmental benefit.
DWF uses this innovative online platform to record the impact of activities which support the firm’s CSR themes of education, employability, health and well-being and homelessness. In addition to this, the system enables DWF to map this impact against the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), 17 global goals set by the UN in 2015 to achieve a more sustainable future and address global challenges.
Chris Farrell, Managing Director of Impact Reporting, said:
“Impact is an attractive CSR reporting solution for DWF as we provide a tech solution to collate all social value activity accrued by employees and through the foundation. The firm can measure the social value of a range of charitable ventures they’re involved in – from buying books for a specialist braille library to updating bathrooms in hospices and funding sports activities.
“Impact also improves the efficiency of data capture by automating the transfer of data from existing DWF systems, such as time-sheets, directly into the tool. All this rich data is then fed into a visual dashboard, in real-time, for immediate access.”
Ty Jones, Director of CSR and Engagement at DWF, said:
“Across the DWF Group, CSR activity is embedded into our values and we want to ensure our actions are meaningful when we give our time, skills and business intelligence to make a difference. Impact provides everyone within our business with their own CSR profile and enables us to measure and report our CSR performance in real time.
“We are always striving to do things differently and have used Impact to support engagement activities across our global business. This has included a global challenge to promote health and well-being, staff recorded the distances they travelled through walking, cycling, swimming, and our offices competed against each other to log the most miles.”
