Together, let’s place the Social and Inclusive Economy at the heart of the international agenda!


These models mobilize companies to balance their economic performance and social and environmental impact, promote ethical finance, and foster citizen engagement.


Through new alliances forged with public and private actors as well as civil society, these companies and other agents of this social economy now have the power to change the world!

Pact for Impact aims to create a Global Alliance to promote and strengthen the Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE), the Inclusive Economy, its companies, and all stakeholders of social innovation.


Social, solidarity, and inclusive economic models are answers to our changing world, offering sustainable growth and innovative solutions to meet the challenges facing our planet and its territories!
