Social enterprise in Asia and Europe – Sen Bam Aquino in Berlin

Social enterprise in Asia and Europe – Sen Bam Aquino in Berlin | Inclusive Business in Asia | Scoop.it

"Experiences in Korea, Japan and even China can be extremely interesting for decision-makers in Europe; conversely the way some countries in Europe developed local ecosystems for social enterprises can serve as a good toolkit for many stakeholders in Asia."

This was echoed by Karl Satinitigan, a policy advisor from the office of Senator Bam Acquino (who also attended): "Even if the context is different and even if specific policies and programs may not be transplanted, the constant dialogue will be powerful enough for social entrepreneurs and the players who support them because it can serve as a reminder to them that they are not alone in the fight against some of the world's most intractable social problems. I have personally seen how these reminders can be powerful in keeping the passion alive."

LCF: Leave it to traders to effectively reduce poverty

LCF: Leave it to traders to effectively reduce poverty | Inclusive Business in Asia | Scoop.it

Inclusive business

He adds that, in a recent study conducted by ADB last year, there are 20,000 social entrepreneurs in the country. But only a hundred of these entrepreneurs possess the scale to create an impact on the lives of other Filipinos.

And out of the hundred, only 30 companies have sound business portfolios on which banks have stamped their approval.

Bauer says that there are more or less 30 companies in the Philippines that may be considered “inclusive business.”

“There is a need to scale up the impact on poverty reduction,” he says.

Bauer says inclusive business must be mindful of the problems of society.

A business “must consistently create jobs in small areas. Generating just 50 jobs for 50 people is not systematic,” he says.

Also, a social enterprise must take a look at and study the core problems in the Philippines such as jobs, social security, and housing in urban areas.

“It is not CSR, not social enterprise, if it does not have the scale nor the impact on the lives of ordinary Filipinos,” he adds.

Bauer also advises CSR managers to recalibrate their focus on what is most relevant for the country.
