The Mark is designed to become the brand for social enterprises. The Mark identifies businesses that meet defined criteria for social enterprise and the aim is that both consumers and procurers will recognise that those businesses displaying the Mark are genuinely trading to benefit people and planet.
The Social Enterprise Mark is awarded by the Social Enterprise Mark Company set up as a Community Interest Company (CIC) Limited by shares and as a joint venture between the Social Enterprise Coalition and RISE SW.
