As a program in general, companies always expect a rate of return or Return On Investment (ROI) of the investment that has been issued. ROI is one ratio that can be used as a performance measure to calculate investment. ROI level shows how much the investment produces a rate of return for the company.

In Social Responsibility, the world today has been introduced to a concept with what is commonly referred to as social investment. Based on the presentation of the KPMG research report (2014) of more than 100 companies and the largest charity foundations, it was found that 93% of companies have measured social investments using input basis (such as: financial contributions, employee time and product donations) and 88% of companies have made output measurement (such as: number of participants in social programs). However, reporting on the outcomes and impacts generated is in small number. Only about 30% companies have reported outcomes and only 20% companies have measured the impact that companies have created from the existence of short-term programs. Calculation of social investment is an important thing to do to know quantitatively the value created from the existence of a program.

In calculating the social investment that a company has spent, there are several methods that can be used to measure social impacts. One of them is Social Return On Investment or commonly abbreviated as SROI, is a framework for measuring and calculating. Furthermore SROI is not just calculating value in monetary units, but more than that SROI seeks to see the impact created by a program on society and the effectiveness of social investment that has been issued by the company.
