Social Value Task Group
In July 2020, the Social Value Task Group was convened to develop a definition of social value for the built environment. The ambition was for the definition to be applicable to all building types and asset classes, across all stages of the building lifecycle.
- Confusion around social value in the context of the built environment.
- Planners, procurement teams and investors either don’t know what to require from delivery partners or set those requirements in a very inconsistent way.
- There are often calls for standardisation (e.g. around measurement), but also flexibility – getting this balance right is difficult.
Framework for Defining Social Value
The Framework provides a definition of social value for the built environment and outlines how to define social value for any project or place. This aims to bring clarity to the concept of social value in the built environment, while providing real and actionable principles and processes to create impact in every project or place.
Next year, the Social Value Programme will be launching a forum to support members wishing to align with the framework. If you are interested, or would like to find out more, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
