Streamline Results for SROI

The expected return weighs the anticipated social benefits of an investment against its costs, discounted to today’s value. This expected return can take various forms; examples include Social Return on Investment (SROI), the Benefit-Cost Ratio (BCR), and the Economic Rate of Return (ERR). SROI is a principles-based method for reporting on the value relative to resources spent.


The seven SROI principles are:

  • Involve stakeholders.
  • Understand what changes.
  • Value the things that matter.
  • Only include what is material. 
  • Do not over-claim.
  • Be transparent.
  • Verify the result.

Help investors and investee to understand value created, provide strategic decision making.

SROI uses monetization of social impacts to assess value. Monetizing social return requires that investors, funds, and enterprises alike formulate their stances on strategy, funding, and services based on expected stakeholder benefits and costs.

Remove bias by providing hard figures for comparison. At a more macro level, SROI methodology can help get at how meaningful the work of a particular investor, fund, or enterprise is by examining its economic and other impacts on society.

Word Of Caution

A number of assumptions that go into the calculation of value introduce uncertainty that makes SROI potentially problematic.  Some organization feel that SROI is a useful tool to inform priorities and decisions internally but not for external communication about the impact
