社会企业是这样的一种组织,它运用商业手段来最大化改善人类和社会福祉,而并非为利益相关者谋取最大利益。社会企业的法人身份可以是营利性的,也可以是非营利性。
很多商业企业认为他们自己具有解决社会问题的目标,但是对这些社会目标的投入是以最终获得更多的财务回报为目的的。相反,社会企业并不是以为投资者提供利益回报为目的,除非他们认为这样做可以最终能提升他们实现社会目标的能力
A social enterprise is an organization that applies commercial strategies to maximize improvements in human and environmental well-being, rather than maximizing profits for external shareholders. Social enterprises can be structured as a for-profit or non-profit.
Many commercial enterprises would consider themselves to have social objectives, but commitment to these objectives is motivated by the perception that such commitment will ultimately make the enterprise more financially valuable. Social enterprises differ in that, inversely, they do not aim to offer any benefit to their investors, except where they believe that doing so will ultimately further their capacity to realize their social and environmental goals.
