"Shout it Out: Communicating Products’ Social Impacts" is a White Paper of the Consumer Information Programme. This white paper was developed through a collaborative working group of the Programme, led by UN Environment, the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre and New Earth. It explores how businesses can assess as well as communicate their social and environmental performance to consumers. The primary objective of the white paper is to identify good practices of product-level social impact communication that can motivate or be replicated. It identifies relevant principles, criteria and means to communicate such impacts, including recommendations on integrating social impact communication with more well-established environmental impact communication tools. While the focus lies on business to consumer (B2C) communications, the recommendations given are also valid for business to business (B2B) and business to government communications.
