Aedes has participated, along with other Factories of Excellence businesses, in research carried out by the CDO Study Centre on company social, environmental and economic impacts.

This study measured the “BIA” (Benefit Impact Assessment) of member companies. BIA is a weighted, extra-financial, positive-impact indicator recognised by the Harvard Business Review. The United Nations has also chosen to use it to assess company impacts in relation to the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Aedes scored 73 points on the BIA indicator, or well above the world average of 53.6.
