Overview

The world is facing the interconnected challenges of inequality and climate change, in tandem with associated economic, environmental, technological, geopolitical and public health risks.

Over decades, social enterprises, cooperatives and innovative, entrepreneurial non-profits have prioritised social and environmental values, and made a difference where it matters: on the ground, among the millions of communities and natural ecosystems facing damage and loss.

These actors embrace explicit social objectives and governance models, and work with groups who face barriers because of gender, race, ability and economic class. Jointly referred to as the social economy, they deliver inclusive and sustainable economic development.
