Our Social Performance Ratings System (SPRS) is designed to analyze how effective an organization is at translating its mission into practice. It encompasses the organization's objectives, systems, services, human resources, performance indicators and results.

The results of this analysis and evaluation is expressed through an output called a Social Performance & Impact Rating (SPIR). This rating is also meant to give the organisation in question a value-added tool for identifying and assessing the specific areas in its social performance that need improving, and where it is achieving or surpassing its social objectives.

It is also used by investors to understand the policies and practices of financial institutions that promote social values.
