On the occasion of the OECD Global Forum on Responsible Business Conduct (29-30 June 2017), the OECD held a meeting on The Role of Business in Inclusive Growth and People’s Well-Being – Developing Effective Measurement Tools, which was attended by representatives of business, investors, academics and civil society. The meeting was an occasion to involve stakeholders in the development and championing of transformational business models, and explore the tools required to support this.
The OECD Statistics Directorate, together with HEC Paris/SnO Center, is issuing a call for papers to develop and support research on Measuring the Impact of Business on Well-being. The call for papers focuses on several themes, including:
- showcasing good examples of existing frameworks;
- proliferation of common indicators;
- use of national official statistics to assess business impact on well-being; and
- effects of measurement of on business performance and consumer and investor behaviour.
Selected papers will be presented at the 6th OECD World Forum on Statistics, Knowledge and Policy which will take place in Korea in November 2018.
