Our vision at NESsT is of a new, more accessible, social capital marketplace that generates financial and social benefits while being more responsive to the needs of local communities, small producers and low-income people. By purchasing products and services sold by social enterprises, consumers are simultaneously helping to further a social and environmental purpose and contributing to a more equitable and sustainable world.
We believe that social enterprises create more open, fair and productive markets by extending access to:
- fair employment
- sustainable income
- quality, affordable, basic services
- improved living conditions
- socially and environmentally responsible products & services
- universal rights
NESsT believes that social enterprises create more sustainable, long-lasting solutions to critical social problems.
