WD Denis Stokkink - Social impact measurement, an opportunity for social enterprises?

  1. 1. Social Impact Measurement An Opportunity for Social Enterprises? Stockholm OECD LEED Forum 24/04/2014 Denis Stokkink
  2. 2. European Think Tank Pour la Solidarité - PLS • A service provider for socio-economic and political stakeholders wishing to operate in a professional manner in the European solidarity sector • Our projects help to build bridges between the different families of stakeholders in the economic and social sectors: public authorities, companies, trade unions research centers and associations • Areas of expertise: participative democracy, diversity, transition, … and social economy/social enterprises
  3. 3. Social enterprises and the EU: current issues and challenges addressed by PLS • European elections • Social Business Initiative • Structural Funds 2014-2020 • Social Impact Measurement 11/02/2014: Conference on Social Impact Measurement and Social Economy, links between the European framework and the local initiatives and practices
  4. 4. Social Impact Measurement: A Necessity Eg.: • Public Procurements • Social Investments In either case: - Social enterprises and enterprises with a social aim are concerned - more and more social criterions come into consideration
  5. 5. Social enterprises are more than CSR enterprises or enterprises with a social aim (1/2) • Corporate Social Responsibility: “a concept whereby companies integrate social and environmental concerns in their business operations and in their interaction with their stakeholders on a voluntary basis” - COM(2001)366 • Social Enterprises: “the social or societal objective of the common good is the reason for the commercial activity, often in the form of a high level of social innovation; (…) profits are mainly reinvested with a view to achieving this social objective; and (…) the method of organisation or ownership system reflects their mission using democratic or participatory principles or focusing on social justice.” – COM(2011)682 SBI Neuchâtel 12 mars 2013
  6. 6. Social enterprises are more than CSR enterprises or enterprises with a social aim (2/2) Besides, social enterprises: - are often coming from collective initiatives (bottom up) - have strong local roots - involve local stakeholders and citizens - are therefore more capable to develop social innovations for most fair, inclusive, participative and responsible territories
  7. 7. Social enterprises have to highlight their characteristics: - objectivizing these characteristics instead of proclaiming them… - … with clear indicators… - … taking into account these characteristics (local roots and impact on local needs, governance, social innovation, …)
