The social and solidarity economy

The social and solidarity economy (SSE) is a segment of the economy recognised and defined under French law as of July 31, 2017. It brings together structures that reconcile social utility and financial performance, whose common objective is the creation of local jobs, social inclusion and territorial cohesion. These structures can be associations, cooperatives, mutual corporations, foundations, or social enterprises with commercial status.

The SSE makes it possible to seek social and/or environmental performance by financing needs that are insufficiently met by traditional financing channels in France.
