Organisations are under increasing pressure to demonstrate their contribution to society. Many businesses also recognise the value that responsible business activities bring back to their organisation, thereby mutually reinforcing the case for a strong social and environmental purpose. 

The Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 Act has helped to bring the broader social value agenda to the fore. It has encouraged public sector procurement teams to look beyond financial metrics and measurements within bids and tendering activities, much of this being driven by enlightened local authorities. This shift in focus is changing expectations, creating a market where suppliers are increasingly expecting to demonstrate social value. 


Join us for a half day course to discuss how the built environment industry can understand, measure, and communicate its social value. The course will cover all of the steps needed for a social value assessment, including working with stakeholders, measuring outcomes, and applying monetary values. It will explore the different frameworks and tools that are available, including UKGBC’s Framework for Defining Social Value. The course will be interactive, with a range of examples, discussions, and exercises. 

Why attend  

Gain the latest thinking on social value, and clear processes of how to generate and measure social value. The session will be compelling and interactive allowing you to think through the key touchpoints for a development to create broader positive impact on communities, whilst also learning from networking with your peers and experts and hearing about their experiences. 

Who should attend? 

This course will be most relevant to built environment professionals who are striving to maximise social value outcomes.
