About The Book

Welcome to the world of social impacts! In her groundbreaking first book, 'What is a Social Impact?', social development specialist Ildiko Almasi Simsic embarks on a journey to define social impacts through the lens of sustainability, environmental, social, and governance (ESG), social impact assessment, corporate social responsibility (CSR), impact investing, philanthropy, social enterprises, and more. With nearly 15 years of experience as a social performance practitioner, Ildiko expertly dissects and evaluates the social impacts created by each 'social impact product', offering pragmatic insights and real-world examples that challenge conventional approaches.


Whether you're a seasoned practitioner, a student of sociology or development studies, a passionate changemaker, or a curious individual seeking to make a difference, this book is your indispensable guide to understanding, assessing, and strategizing for a better world with a transformative perspective. It stands as the first comprehensive assessment of social impacts in this context, delivered by a seasoned practitioner, making it a unique and invaluable resource.


Beyond being a mere book, 'What is a Social Impact?' ignites a critical discussion on the path forward. As the social impact field is advancing, the time has come to refine and re-define our common understanding of social impacts, and work towards overcoming limitations of social impact products. With compelling examples from the field, captivating case studies about tangible social impacts, this book offers practical insights and boundless inspiration, illuminating the road towards a more sustainable and socially conscious future.
