It is important to consider and measure this social value from the perspective of those affected by an organisation’s work. At Social Value UK, they believe that changing the way society accounts for value by increasing accounting of social and environmental value will ultimately result in an increase in equality and reduction in environmental degradation. We believe that anyone can start to account for their social value, no matter the size of the organization or the amount of resources available.”
