Social Impact is both an organizational objective and a measurable outcome. Social Impact organizations operate responsibly day-to-day and pursue long-term goals to solve society's most pressing challenges.

Examples of Social Impact organizations include innovative nonprofits, social enterprises and socially responsible businesses. Social Impact Organizations:

Create products and services that positively impact people and planet.  

Strive for operational standards that value people and their work.

Recognize a responsibility to the community and environment in which they operate.

Measure and share their impact with all stakeholders. 

Believe in the power of collaboration for mutually beneficial social impact outcomes.
