What is a social enterprise?

Social enterprises are businesses that have a social mission at their core and use sustainable commercial models to achieve this social mission. Their primary objective is to achieve positive social, cultural, community, economic and/or environmental outcomes. They sustain themselves with earned revenue, with no reliance on philanthropic funding to support their operations. 

Traditional commercial models focus on delivering profits to shareholders and may contribute a portion of excess profits for social good; social enterprises focus on centring their operating models around achieving their social mission. Profits generated are committed towards strengthening their ability to create positive social impact and to clearly demonstrate such impact with measurement and reporting. 

What is the eligibility for the Social Enterprise Package application?

Customers must be listed as a social enterprise in the Social Enterprise Directory published by Social Enterprise Business Centre: at the time the Bank processes the application of Social Enterprise Package.
