There is often some confusion between the different labels and badges available to social sector organisations.
The Social Enterprise Mark is a unique accreditation, in that it provides an independent, externally assessed guarantee that a business is operating primarily in the interests of creating benefits for people and planet.
We have produced a useful comparison tableto outline the key differences between the Social Enterprise Mark and other badges and labels.
With research showing that public trust in business is declining, we have teamed up with other independent Standard Bodies that set and assess genuine and transparent standards, which help consumers cut through the barrage of branding and use their purchasing power for good.
All applicants and renewing Mark holders are required to provide social impact statements, which illustrate how they are striving to create a positive impact on people and planet. These statements are published online in the directory of accredited social enterprises.
We have recently published our own social impact statements, which demonstrate how we are striving to make a difference and stand up to scrutiny of purpose as a social enterprise.
We have recently renewed the Memorandum of Understanding with The Regulator of Community Interest Companies, symbolising an ongoing mutual commitment to co-operation & collaboration.
The agreement enables both parties to exchange information and provide feedback on relevant issues relating to CICs.
There are now over 13,500 CICs in the UK. These businesses automatically meet most of the criteria covered by the Social Enterprise Mark and over ¼ of our network of accredited social enterprises are registered as CICs.
She looks at how the Community Interest Company (CIC) model provides a perfect fit for social enterprise, and also explains how we are broadening our horizons as an established social enterprise accreditation authority.
