SocialEnterpriseVisionCEIS, Community Enterprise, Firstport, HISEZ, InspirAlba, Senscot, Social Enterprise Academy, Social Enterprise Scotland, and Social Firms Scotland have published Building a New Economy: Scotland’s Vision for Social Enterprise 2025.

A representative commented that, “Over the next decade we will see social enterprise at the vanguard of a new wave of ethical and socially responsible business in Scotland. The social enterprise movement will develop as a broad church, bound by a common code and principles; supporting each other, trading with each other.”

Social enterprises’ are businesses that trade for the common good rather than the unlimited private gain of a few. They address social needs, strengthen communities, improve people’s life chances, enhance culture or protect the environment.
