D4.T3 Guideline to Social Return on Investment (SROI)

An SROI analysis can fulfill a range of purposes, as it can be used to guide management choices, as a tool for strategic planning and improving, for communicating impact and attracting investment, or for making investment decisions. This document is intended to help companies to also take social aspects into account in the overall consideration of the quality of work. Especially for companies that work with the sustainable raw material wood, the issues of climate protection and social aspects go hand in hand. For this reason, too, it is important to work out the added value of integration and similar issues for a company. This approach can not only be beneficial for the company itself but can also present the entire sector of the furniture and wood industry as sustainable in an overall social context.
