As a large organisation, we’re using our spending power as a driving force for social change.
And to continue to drive this change, we need to carry on working collaboratively with our suppliers and extended supply chain.
Our aim to maximise opportunities for social enterprises to deliver products and services is achieving great results. We’re enjoying new relationships with many social enterprise suppliers and we want this this to be a common ethos of working amongst our supply chain.
Working with Social Enterprise UK we’re identifying key areas of spend opportunities for social enterprise business where gaps in the market exist. However, we have a lot more to do as we strive to achieve our spend targets of £8m in 2020 and £40m in 2023.
We are also working on the delivery of our new Social Value Supply Chain charter - encouraging and requiring all suppliers to raise the bar and commit to social value action.
