Analysis and measurement of the creation of Shared Value is an original method
developed by Althesys that surpasses traditional economic-social impact studies

Supports businesses in designing and communicating development strategies in an integrated vision of economic well-being, social inclusion, and environmental sustainability

The methodology is developed by Althesys and considers all production-consumption chain phases: procurement of raw materials, components, services, logistics, distribution, and sale.

  • Wealth creation is assessed for each stage of the value chain, considering direct, indirect, and induced business activities effects on territory over a certain period. The geographical area can be the entire country or single areas where the activities are located
  • The assessment starts with company data to estimate upstream and downstream effects concerning the firm; moreover, the estimation examines the set of suppliers (distinguished by sectors), the logistics system and the distribution chain, the latter differentiated by the various distribution channels
  • The added value generated by the company produces induced effects which are estimated on macroeconomic parameters and specific multipliers to each category, using data and institutional third-party sources
  • Effects on environmental sustainability, safety, and health are often estimated and included in the assessment
  • Each phase is evaluated through multiple economic and social categories: added value, employment, taxes, induced spin-offs, etc.
  • The analysis of the Shared Value considers not only direct impacts on suppliers and customers but also multiplier effects of wealth created for workers and the community on consumption and investments.
