Overview

Independent SROI Consultants & Consulting Solutions

Use more than 10 years of our global consulting experience in Social Issues, Community, CSR and Sustainability. We work one-on-one with business leaders, foundations, NGOs and Implementation Bodies to develop their Social Return on Investment – SROI Reports and Communications.

SROI enables organisations to consider their impacts of a wide range of societal issues in a quantified financial term, enabling them to be more transparent about the risks and opportunities they face.

Social ROI or SROI is about value, rather than money.

Money is simply a common unit and as such is a useful and widely accepted way of conveying value.

There is increasing recognition that we need better ways to account for the Social ROI or SROI. It includes social, economic and environmental value that results from the impact investment or CSR or Development activities. The language varies – ‘impact’, ‘output’, ‘outcome’, ‘returns’, ‘benefit’, ‘value’ – but the questions around what sort of difference and how much of a difference we are making are the same.

Understanding and managing this broader value is becoming increasingly important for the corporate, public sector, government, funders, impact investors and civil society organisations. They actually need to create social value, commonly known as SROI or Social ROI.

Social Return on Investment ensures that their investments make a positive difference.

How Consultivo SROI Consulting Solutions are unique?

We are in close collaboration with the funding and investment bodies for development projects. Our SROI Consultants have worked with multidimensional projects in different geo-locations & gained a fair understanding of different social projects and their impacts.

We use Logical Framework Approach and the Theory of Change Model as an approach to outline the long-term goals, map activities and pathways that lead to the desired outputs, outcomes and impact. It clarifies how activities and interventions contribute to positive social impact.

That reflects in our work.

Some more answers to your questions – FAQ

Social Return on Investment or Social ROI or SROI

It is a method of accounting for value creation, primarily social or sustainable development value. SROI enables organisations to measure how much change is being created by tracking relevant social, environmental, and economic outcomes.

The key difference between Social ROI and other Social Impact Assessment methodologies is the assignation of monetary values to the amount of change created.

To give a very simplistic example: SROI assigns a monetary value to inputs and outcomes and uses that value to calculate a ratio. If that ratio is 3:1, it means that every Rupee allocated will generate (or has generated) social value worth three rupees.

Social Return on Investment evaluation projects are part of an Independent CSR Impact Assessment Projects.

An SROI analysis can take many different forms. It can encompass the social value generated by an entire organisation, or focus on just one specific aspect of the organisation’s work. There are also a number of ways to organise the ‘doing’ of an SROI or Social Return on Investment. It can be carried out largely as an in-house exercise or, alternatively, can be led by an external researcher.

There are two types of Social ROI

  • Evaluative, which is conducted retrospectively and based on actual outcomes that have already taken place.
  • Forecast, which predicts how much social value will be created if the activities meet their intended outcomes.

Social Return on Investment evaluation projects are part of an Independent CSR Impact Assessment Projects.
