Shared Value In-Practice Series | Building capacity for long-term social procurement partnerships

Social procurement is gathering momentum as a mechanism to create long term social value. Social procurement is when an organisation purchases goods or services from an enterprise that creates social value in their business model. In the construction sector social procurement has gained prominence as government buyers are often required to allocate a certain percentage of their expenses to creating social value. By creating long-term sustainable and scalable partnerships, organisations support the growth of the social enterprise sector whilst helping enterprises deliver on projects requirements. You might also call it… creating shared value.
