Our social value

Across our Group and within all services, we place social value at our core.

As well as providing social value software and consulting services to clients via Loop we also invest a lot of time and effort in our own operational impacts across our Group.

Our Focus Areas

To help support our Group mission we’ve identified priority areas to drive our own social value. We feel it’s important that our stakeholders steer us on what those key areas are so we conduct materiality assessments across both our staff and clients to gather their inputs. This has helped us form five focus areas as the targets of our Group social value drive:

  • arrow-rightWorkforce Wellbeing
  • arrow-rightEquity, Diversity And Inclusion (EDI)
  • arrow-rightEthics And Governance
  • arrow-rightWorkforce Development
  • arrow-rightCarbon Footprint
Under each of these areas we have sets of prioritised initiatives, looking at both quick wins and longer-term developments. These have already resulted in the Group becoming Good Business Charter accredited and a certified Living Wage Employer.

How we measure and report

Measurement is key to better managing and maximising our social value. We have placed it at the heart of our social value approach.

The National Social Value Standard provides a broad, robust and accessible measurement framework to help drive greater social value, in the right way. It is the leading social value framework and monetises impacts using proxy financial values.

The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI):

The best of the ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) frameworks.

We are working towards becoming a certified ‘B Corp’ and be independently assessed and audited against their standards. This is the highest standard a for-profit business can achieve in terms of their social value impacts – and fits with our ambitions as a Group.
