If you work in the community investment space, chances are, you’ve asked yourself this question. What IS the impact of our community investment? Are we making a difference? How do we measure the depth of our impact?

LBG CDA brings together companies from across Canada to manage, measure and report on the impact of their community investment programs using the LBG Model, the recognized global standard for community investment reporting. LBG Canada companies seek to maximize the value of their community investment programs – for both the community and the business. Together, they set the highest standard in community investment management, performance measurement and reporting in Canada.

Wondering if LBG Canada could be a good fit for your company? Get in touch with Evelyn to connect!  .


Today’s LBG Canada Insight:
