What is “social performance”?

Social performance is defined as “the effective translation of an institution’s mission into practice in line with accepted social values.” Social performance describes how well an organization is achieving its mission, or social goals. Organizations that use the PPI have a mission to positively impact the lives of people living in poverty through information, health services, employment opportunities, financing, or a combination of interventions. These organizations use the PPI to better understand their performance against these social goals.
