However, our activities linked to the development and care of forests, rural development and training and employment of disadvantaged people, have a beneficial impact on the Society. It is what is known as new economy or social economy.
Our positive impact has a triple effect (Triple bottom effect): economic, social and environmental. In addition, SYLVESTRIS has implemented its Social impact and commitment Policy to increase that impact.
Social enterprises can evaluate their impact using the denominated Impact indicators, which have to be measurable, concrete, comparable and verifiable, as to demonstrate and quantify the generated impact.
