Our Company & Services
New times create new needs – and require new solutions
The world is changing – and so are companies. Because when society’s needs change, business must adapt.
The business of business is still business, but the rules of how to stay in business are changing – no matter whether you’re in the business of creating shareholder value, of providing welfare solutions or of making the world a better place.
We believe that sustainable practices that create both economic and social value will secure business and long-term growth as well as the well-being of people and planet.
To us ‘social business’ is about working across the fields of CSR – corporate social responsibility (using social value creation as a means to do business), social innovation (developing solutions to social or environmental challenges) and social entrepreneurship (using business methods as a means to create social value).
Because we believe that social responsibility can be used as a means of generating economic value – and that business can be used as a means of generating social value.
These are the reasons why we have created The Social Business Company® – a purpose-driven company in business of creating social and economic value for the benefit of society and the bottom line.

- Non-profit organizations use market methods to create social value.
- Social entrepreneurs create hybrid organizations with traits from all three sectors.
