In the year 2017 La Città Verde participated as a pioneering cooperative in the “L’impatto conta – Rendiconta l’impatto” (“Impact counts – Report on impact”) project promoted in the Rete 14 Luglio network by a work team consisting of 6 social cooperatives and consortia in 3 regions (Piedmont – Emilia Romagna and Tuscany).
The project’s purpose is to report on the impact of the cooperatives’ actions in terms of benefits and well-being for the whole area.
The methodology provides for description of items and indicators in relation to which change could be generated by the cooperative’s activities. The system actually begins with analysis of the areas in which the cooperative
believes it generates an impact, organising them hierarchically on the basis of their critical importance for the area. The local value matrix appearing below shows the goals for Fair, Sustainable Well-being (FSW) which have a high impact for the cooperative and are priorities for stakeholders, generating direct impact on the local community, in the top right-hand corner.
Issues of importance for stakeholders in areas in which the cooperative has a major impact are shown in ORANGE, while issues given high priority by the local community by stakeholders in which the cooperative has only an indirect impact because they are not directly its concern (Security) are shown in GREEN.
