"Foundations, individual and group investors, public bodies as well as society at large have become increasingly interested and eager to finance and support innovative forms of doing business with a clear societal or environmental mission that are well embedded in all “three pillars” of sustainability (environmental, social and economic).”

“Social impact accounting is different from financial accounting practice in terms of two key materiality issues: the uncertain nature of its material data and the empowering processes by which materiality is established.”

Nicholls, A. (2018). A general theory of social impact accounting: Materiality, uncertainty and empowerment. Journal of Social Entrepreneurship
