Over the last ten years SEED has supported more than 200 social and environmental enterprises enabling collaboration and peer learning. SEED’s inspiring success story and significant key lessons have now been captured with a 10 Year Flagship Report. The global partnership surveyed 175 enterprises that have won a SEED Award within the last ten years and analysed their economic success and the impact on the environment and the community they operate in. Today, 70 per cent of the interviewed enterprises from 37 countries meet their strategic goals or even exceed them. Furthermore SEED Winners create thousands of jobs along their value chain, providing often especially women and the youth alternative income opportunities. With their positive impacts on local communities they have become frontrunners of sustainable development. Learn more about the factors for success as well as important hurdles to overcome in the upcoming ten years.
