The Social Value Business Guide is an initial attempt to identify ways to build social value creation into your company’s business model. It focuses on and explores four emerging opportunities to create strong social value from your business investments and tap into the business benefits:
- community hiring
- living wage
- social buying
- social innovation
These are drawn from a more comprehensive list of social sustainability opportunities – CSR as a Poverty Reduction Strategy – from which you could customise a set of priorities for your own business – to identify a set of social impacts levers that reflect what matters to you and your business and where you can make a positive difference.
