Entities of the Social Economy are ruled by practices of collective action and democratic participation within the framework of what is known as good governance. This is based on a set of values and principles belonging to the organisations. These practices reach beyond the frontiers of the entity and have an impact on society with the application of policies of local development, social and environmental responsibility, and cooperation. This article seeks to establish a relationship between said good governance practices and business results by means of a literature study, finally formulating a theoretical model of good governance in Social Economy, which will be contrasted empirically in subsequent studies.
