Identifying and Measuring Social Cost Worksheet

From the "Financial Intelligence for Social Enterprise" Series

This worksheet is designed to help you identify and measure social costs, which are premiums or additional costs incurred above and beyond normal business costs due to the social, environmental or cultural mandate of the enterprise.

Identifying social costs can help with assessing business strategies and sustainability, comparing business performance to industry benchmarks, and to quantify the extra resources needed to support social objectives in order to make a case for government or funder investment in operating shortfalls.

These concepts are explored in detail in Demonstrating Value's Financial Intelligence: A Guide for Social Enterprises.
