Who we are
An open Ecosystem
Turin and the impact economy
Turin is the ideal ecosystem to undertake the paradigm shift toward a social impact economy and make it a determining factor for local development policies: a solid set of scientific and technological skills, an industrial system strongly characterized by know-how and deeply rooted in society, a Third Sector that combines a consolidated social, civil and religious vocation with significant entrepreneurial skills, a deep-rooted international openness, a new generation of social incubators and accelerators, an innovative public administration and wealthy financial institutions already impact oriented.
Turin is a mature and dynamic ecosystem with a scale suitable for experimentation and a strong tradition of co-planning at the territorial level.
Torino Social Impact
Torino Social Impact is an open platform already gathering over seventy companies, institutions, financial operators, charities, foundation and third sector enterprises. They joined the project by subscribing a MoU aimed at sharing ideas, experiences, projects and resources in order to catalyze and attract investments and activities which aspire to solve emerging social problems through economically sustainable business models.
Mission and principles
The mission of Torino Social Impact is to strengthen the local system and qualify it as one of the best places in the world to do business and finance by pursuing economic goals along with social impact objectives, in the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals 2030.
Torino Social Impact believes that impact must be based on three principles:
- Intentionality – To act with the aim of generating social value
- Additionality – Operate in sub-capitalized sectors which are excluded by market mechanisms
- Measurability – Apply ex ante evaluation methods and ex post measurement tools
Ecosystem building: let companies find the best conditions to do business with a social impact through services, skills, impact finance tools, innovative projects.
Identity promotion : enhance visibility and attract investments through a collective c brand aimed at positioning the territory on the global map of social impact.
The signatories of the MoU are part of the co-planning Assembly of Torino Social Impact, whose operating structure is financed by the Turin Chamber of Commerce within the activities of the Committee for social enterpreunership and by the Compagnia di San Paolo. Specific thematic projects receive contributions from the other partners.
