B4SI gives you the tools, network and expert support to make the most of your social impact activities.

The benefits of joining

Inform Strategy 

Measure to manage. 

Using B4SI to measure your social impact activities will give you the information to make informed decisions about your activities. Know how much you give to long-term partnerships vs ad-hoc donations or how your contributions are split across key issues or geographies. 

Businesses use B4SI metrics to perform strategic reviews, optimise their programmes and monitor performance and delivery of objectives. 

Simplify Measurement

Know what to measure, and how. 

B4SI helps you to measure your social impact activities in a rigorous and credible manner. Built by business, for business – B4SI lists out the potential metrics you can measure, with guidance about how to calculate figures and recognised by leading indices such as S&P’s Dow Jones Sustainability Index. 

Connect With Companies

Continuous learning is essential.

In managing community involvement, we apply the same rigour as in other aspects of our business. This is why we use the B4SI Framework to measure our charitable contributions (cash, time and in kind) and ask B4SI to assure our use of the reporting methodology. It helps ensure we are reporting our charitable contributions accurately and provides learnings to continually improve management of our community investment.”

Alexis Steadman, Global Community Manager, RELX


The B4SI assurance process was thorough and enabled us to report our first year of data using the framework with confidence. The management report and subsequent dialogue with our account manager gave us clarity on how to expand and align our impact capture across our three strategic themes."
