KPMG conducted a Social Return on Investment (SROI) study of 21 community development initiatives across Exxaro, drawing a clearer picture of the true impact of community development efforts to date.
The results offer excellent insights into common themes across projects that point towards sustainable success, as well as those that are struggling to achieve their objectives.
Using a stakeholder centric methodology, the SROI assessment involved extensive discussions with key stakeholders. This provided KPMG with granular insights into the design, implementation and performance of projects. This critical examination allowed us to develop recommendations to enhance processes to increase the social impact of projects. The outcomes of this assessment have enabled Exxaro to better understand the impact it makes to the socio-economic upliftment of communities, and to better guide future community development initiatives.
