The Social Value Podcast

As organisations seek to find ways to play their part in developing a fairer, greener society, the Social Value 2032 programme is exploring how social value can help more organisations and Government do just that.


The aim of the Social Value Podcast is to help leaders in the public and private sector, to understand how using a “social value” approach will enable better decisions. Social Value is a way of maximising the positive social, economic and environmental impact of your organisation.


As part of Social Value 2032, a partnership between Social Enterprise UK, Jacobs, PwC, Shaw Trust, Siemens and Suez Recycling and Recovery UK, Social Enterprise UK is producing a series of podcasts to explore the subject in more detail, speak to thought leaders and bring in real life examples of social value in action.


The programme aims to extend the use of social value across the public and private sectors and highlight how procurement can drive improvement and greater sustainability in businesses and markets in the UK, transforming public services and accelerating the drive to Net Zero.
