This case study presents the experience of the National Confederation of Cooperatives (NATCCO) in its work to integrate a social performance management (SPM) lens into the Filipino cooperative sector. This project, carried out under the auspices of the MFC Social Performance Start-up Fund and was designed to achieve two core aims: to build its members’ capacity to manage and report on their social performance, and to improve the capacity of the network to manage its own social performance as a mission-driven and member-focused organization. The project also responded to a recent important shift in legislation that mandates that all cooperatives undergo a social audit — and NATCCO successfully leveraged its project experience to help shape the regulations that would ultimately apply to its members.
