- Social impact investments are made in companies, organisations and funds with the intention of generating both social and environmental impact with an economic return on investment and concretely supporting solutions to the most pressing challenges by addressing unmet social needs. The social sector needs models of innovation and entrepreneurship to find new solutions for the delivery of existing services and to develop new solutions of common interest.
- A hallmark of impact investing is the investor’s commitment to measure and report on social and environmental performance, which contributes to transparency. The aim is to use economic resources and private expertise to promote market solutions to social needs that are not addressed by the state or the market.
- Impact investing successfully combines a number of key factors: capital, entrepreneurship, both management and financial expertise, a focus on results and partnership between investors and entrepreneurs.
- Fondazione Sviluppo e Crescita CRT invests through financial instruments that positively combine the different aspects of impact investing to increase social benefits for the people of Piedmont and Valle d’Aosta.
The social value of the Foundation’s work lies not only in planning investments in the area, but also in following up the growth of these investments and monitoring the development of policies.
Relationships between decision-makers, intervention providers and beneficiaries are fundamental in order to have a comprehensive and generative vision of higher-performing actions, both in terms of resource allocation and results, without neglecting the possibility of professional and human development for all those involved, starting with the Foundation itself, which draws its inspiration from its direct relationship with the actors with whom it works.
