Social Return on Investment (SROI) is the most widely used impact measurement and management framework in the world in order to understand the concept of social value, manage and maximize social impact.


At the point where financial accounting and social accounting start to merge, accountability makes social impact measurement inevitable.


By measuring the social impact of your business processes and the projects/programs you carry out, you can determine whether your investments create value.


The Social Return on Investment (SROI), a framework for measuring and accounting for the value created or destroyed as a result of our operations, takes the concept of value in a much broader way than can be captured at market prices.

By taking this broader value into account, SROI aims to reduce inequality and environmental degradation and improve well-being. Therefore, by measuring the effects of all organisations that take steps towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and contribute, it becomes possible to optimise their contributions, that is, the value they create.
