Oxfam's poverty footprint- understanding your contribution to development

Written by Stacey Dove

Companies across the world are increasingly concerned about the impacts that their businesses have on societies in their home countries as well as abroad.

Oxfam has developed a methodology that fits these needs. 'Oxfam's Poverty Footprint- Understanding Business Contribution to Development' is based on decades-long experience of working in development and with business and it has been tried with a number of companies. The Briefing for Business summarises how a business can benefit from analysing its impact on society, outlines the Poverty Footprint Methodology and describes how a Poverty Footprint Study is conducted.
