Measuring Impact

Measuring Impact from Laura Kakon, Chief Growth and Strategy Officer at Honoris United Universities


Our commitment to sustainable growth and positive societal impact is integral to our long-term success. Without rigorous measurement, it becomes impossible to ascertain the true impact of our achievements and initiatives. Our annual Impact Report is key to understanding our influence and using that knowledge to drive meaningful change, operating with integrity, accountability, and a genuine sense of responsibility towards society and the environment.

Progress is a journey fraught with challenges, setbacks, and, most importantly, opportunities to learn and improve. Measuring and reporting our social impact is not just an obligation, but a conscious choice to pave the way for a more sustainable and equitable future.

We worked closely with our sponsor, Actis, in light of its award-winning focus on impact investment, to update the Actis Impact Score (AIS), which measures the positive social and environmental impact of investments and enables comparison across sectors and geographies.

Our impact score

We are proud to announce that we successfully improved our impact score by 16 points, from175 in 2021 to 191 in 2022), achieving further recognition in two categories, Quality Education & STEM Education, and welcoming an additional category, Clean Energy, increasing our contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to 12, up from 11 in 2021.

The score therefore once again demonstrates that Honoris delivered transformational progress in Quality Education; Employment Access; Gender Equality; STEM Education, and Clean Energy.
The addition of SDG7: Clean Energy, also increases our contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to 12, up from 11 in 2021. We continue to support the objectives of the Goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for everyone by 2030, by harnessing a collective approach both internally and externally among our many global stakeholders.

Our specific contributions across the 12 SDGs are outlined throughout the report, which is framed across our six core impact pillars: Quality of Learning, Employability, Innovation, Communities, Sustainability, and Network.

We are committed to transforming the lives of our students through relevant education for lifetime success.

We Educate for Impact.
