Social Enterprise Certification Launches in Australia

By Luke Michael

Australia’s leading social enterprise development organisation, Social Traders, launched a certification mark for Australian social enterprises on Monday.

This certification is designed to provide social enterprises with brand credibility, and enhance their prospects of winning commercial procurement contracts with business and government buyers.

“Overall, Social Traders certification is designed to create a more well-defined social enterprise sector and greatly enhance opportunities for growth,” Social Traders managing director David Brookes said.

“Until now, the social enterprise sector has been loosely identified with no single definition. For us, social purpose is the primary criteria and as such recognition via Social Traders certification makes it easier for business and government to buy from these social enterprises.
