social organizations often lack the budget for the necessary sustainability. With Softs you as a social organization can become more sustainable without having to invest yourself. Not by investing own resources (which are actually intended for core social tasks) or by borrowing money, but by starting a project with us.
Structural more budget
A project yields a sustainability budget of up to € 100,000. With this budget, the social organization becomes more sustainable, so that the energy bill is lowered. This creates a structurally more budget for core tasks.
New construction or rebuild
If a social organization has new construction or rebuilding plans, the Softs model is a great application to include solar panels and energy-saving measures directly in the realization. This requires no extra budget and in addition the energy bill is lowered. This creates more budget for core tasks.
The six promises from Softs to Social Organizations
- Up to € 100,000 budget for sustainability.
- Access to solar panels without investing yourself.
- A direct reduction in the energy bill.
- Better and sustainable commitment to companies.
- Less dependent on governments.
- Structurally more budget for core tasks.
The Softs model starts with a Softs Point, in addition solar panels are made available. The model realizes a sustainability budget for a social organization.
A Softs Point is rented for 5 years.
The Softs Points are realized at a location desirable for the tenant. This can be in facades of buildings, boarding, road screens or other urban surfaces.
For companies and municipalities, the Softs Points realize sustainable communication, CO₂ compensation, 15 years of sustainable interaction with the target group. This also gives substance to SROI.
In addition to a Softs Point, 54,000 Wp of solar panels are made available. That is around 400 m² of roof space in five years. These are placed in a suitable location in consultation with the tenant of the Softs Point.
The energy that comes from the solar panels is offered at an attractive rate. The proceeds are sponsored by social organizations for sustainability.
In short: tenants are assured of the greenest electricity at a very attractive rate and social organizations have a sustainability budget.
The yield from the solar panels is the sustainability budget of the social organization.
A Softs Point realizes a "sustainability budget" of up to € 100,000 for social organizations in education, health, sports, culture and welfare and for charities or projects.
The sustainability budget allows social organizations to lower their energy bill, which in time will create more spending scope for core tasks.
