Longitudinal Study of Eco-Inclusive Enterprise Performance (Part II)
An Investigation Into The Triple Bottom Line Performance Of Micro And Small Social And Environmental Enterprises In Developing Countries (Part II)
SEED seeks to increase knowledge and understanding about small-scale social and environmental enterprises. In 2009, SEED and its research partner, IISD, started a three-year study into the performance of these enterprises and the findings are available in the two reports below.
Two key questions have driven the investigation:
- Is it possible to determine whether and how such enterprises are making a contribution to social, environmental and economic progress within their communities; and
- What are the enabling factors and barriers to making that contribution?
The study has been published in two parts. Part II presents case studies on the progress of SEED Alumni from the time they received the SEED Award until 2012.
