We’re delighted to announce that this month we’ve become a Social Value Pioneer thanks to the team at Social Value UK.
Social Value UK is leading the adoption and recognition of social value within procurement and capital projects across the UK and is the recognised body for all things social value. It has partnerships with a number of prestigious companies in the UK and across the world through its international arms. We are delighted to join such an esteemed group.
At Pagabo we’ve always put social value at the forefront of what we do, with an emphasis on delivering and demonstrating the power of social value to all our clients. In fact, our frameworks have enabled more £1bn in social value since 2017 which is why this announcement of our new status is an important milestone for us as a business.
Rebecca Harvey, Membership and Networks Manager for Social Value UK commented “We are thrilled to have Pagabo on board as Social Value Pioneers. Procurement plays a vital role in ensuring communities benefits from inward investment, and Pagabo's commitment to ensuring that their clients and suppliers put social value at the heart of their activities is fantastic to see. We look forward to working closely with Pagabo going forward and are excited by the opportunities this membership will bring.”
Gerard Toplass, Chairman of Pagabo, is also delighted that the new membership has been confirmed. “SVUK has been setting the standards for Social Value for many years now, and Pagabo is proud to have joined the movement and are looking forward to working with them and their partners to continue to foster improved outcomes from the investments our frameworks create”
