The European Commission

The social economy is directly taken into account by the European Commission’s Directorate General Enterprise and Industry.

DG Internal Market and Services integrates the social economy in the context of its work on "Business environment" - more specifically on the "social business initiative" - and on Investment Funds - particularly on Social Investment Funds.

DG Employment, Social Affairs & Inclusion DG works on issues related to social economy in the framework of "Europe 2020 initiatives" and setting up of the European platform against poverty.
