The SDGs: a common framework to promote Social Impact Measurement of the SSE

This report analyses the potential of integrating the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into the Social Impact Measurement (SIM) of the social and solidarity economy (SSE). Members who participated in the PLP Social Impact Measurement led by French Impact agreed that integrating the SDGs into SIM could help SSE in clarifying its impact and improve its visibility. This, in turn, could increase SSE access to funding and build a larger audience while playing an advocacy role. However, there remain cultural, financial and technical obstacles that must be overcome – issues which the PLP determined should be addressed at an ecosystem level across all stakeholders including policy makers,
investors and, of course, SSE organisations.
