Social Value UK is proud to announce QRO Solutions Ltd as a Social Value Pioneer! Ahead of their joining, Social Value UK spoke to QRO Solutions Ltd about their social value journey so far.
Tell us a bit about your organisation and what you are trying to achieve…
QRO Solutions Ltd was established in the year 2000 to provide Automatic Number Plate Recognition Systems to the UK Police market. In 2016, QRO Solutions Ltd was acquired by Petards Group Plc with a vision to grow the product and market through organic growth and financial investment. QRO are keen to establish connections in the community, in order to add value learnt within many years of business.
Why do you think social value is important? In your organisation, your industry or in wider society?
QRO feel that they could contribute to the way we account for value in order to arrive at better equality and a more sustainable environment.
Does your organisation have a background in social value/social accounting/SROI? e.g. have you already completed any reports? Are there any projects that you have started since you joined Social Value UK? Are there any specific projects you are doing at the moment that are related to social value/social accounting/SROI?
Any Social Value impact has not been measured or quantified. Currently QRO aim to utilise local suppliers for manufacture of goods and components where possible. QRO aim to recruit locally where possible.
What are your plans for your SVUK membership?
QRO would like to contribute more actively with the community and to help promote QRO’s activities in this area.
QRO believes that a company with a higher purpose is more profitable than those that just think
about the bottom line.
