Social Value Strategy Consulting

Managing the "social & environmental value" of business activities helps shape business development strategy for sustainable economic resilience.

Contributing a positive social value to the economy is a means to develop a strong relationship with government & society. Sustainable businesses may grow more quickly due to consumer trust and are resilient to taxation policy.

Social value includes economic, environmental & social costs or contributions as a means to value innovations that contribute to sustainability. The major themes are reducing carbon emissions & stabilising the escalating UK social welfare budget. Projects that contribute social value make “feel good” stories that are publishable material for Public Relations.
