Join the Social Value Community

The Social Value Community website is designed to meet your peers, discuss, contribute and learn about the best ways to assess Social Impacts along the entire value chain of a product, brand, business-unit or entire company. Everybody is invited to sign up to create a profile and become a member.

We welcome companies, industry associations, academics, consultants and all other interested individuals or organisations to share ideas that contribute to the further development of credible metrics, tools, data sources and other solutions. We strongly believe such solutions can bring social value for all stakeholders along the value chain.

Here is a link to the member registration page.

Our Core Partners are the backbone of the Partnership

The social Value Initiative is governed by (currently) seven Corepartners. We would love to expand this group, but we do require new companies to be able to show some evidence that they have understood and applied the basic concepts of Social Value Chain Assessment or Social LCA. This means that companies who have published a reviewed case study summary can also become a Core Partner. Core Partners are the “owners “ of the Creative Commons Licence; they decide about updates and they steer the direction of the Partnership.

The illustration below summarises the targets we have set ourselves for the tenth year of the initiative *till spring 2024
