addressing internal and external social impacts

Addressing both internal and external social issues is essential for companies to demonstrate their commitment to social responsibility, sustainability, and ethical business practices. Effective management of these issues can enhance reputation, mitigate risks, and create long-term value for all stakeholders.

internal social issues reflect the dynamics, challenges and opportunities within a company

environmental impact
