Why do you think social value is important? In your organisation, your industry or in wider society?
Social Value is an imperative aspect of what we do in the Supply Chain. It is important to think about the communities where we exist and the impact our work can make on their lives. There are multiple drivers to work in Social Value in our Supply Chains, from identifying the most important issues in our local areas, to integrating social responsibility in processes and delivering impact to empower our local communities and people.
Does your organisation have a background in social value/social accounting/SROI?
Action Sustainability has experience of 15+ years in advising and consulting clients on Social Value in a variety of sectors by supporting them in understanding their local communities and implementing Social Value strategies and frameworks. Within our Supply Chain Sustainability School, we have developed knowledge resources and a Social Value Group with a vision to support our partners, members and the wider built environment sector to drive Social Value with our overall aim of delivering a sustainable future for the built environment.
What are your plans for your SVUK membership?
Collaboration is the key to achieving Social Value in everything that we do. Action Sustainability is excited to become a member of Social Value UK and we plan to learn and share our experience with the SVUK. We look forward to partnering with you to create more awareness and learn from fellow members of SVUK
