Developing a new business culture: Task Force on Social Finance

Submitted by robertgnewell on 2 November 2011

Social finance focuses on developing a business culture with strong representation of socially responsible enterprises, known as social enterprises. The aim of a strong social finance system is to mobilize sources of capital in a manner that allows for the creation of businesses with social/environmental principles incorporated in their business model. Ideally, a business culture with strong social finance aspect will foster healthy communities and society, which in turn is conducive to healthy environment and sustainable economy.

The Task Force on Social Finance has recently created a report detailing how our nation can encourage the emergence of social enterprises and enable a responsible business culture.
