Recently at Edenred, a group of colleagues have been working hard to spearhead a re-evaluation of our social value strategy. The result is our new social value policy, which demonstrates to all our public sector customers that working with us will help to secure wider social, economic and environmental benefits.
As part of our policy we are renewing our focus on employee volunteering, helping those who are struggling with the cost of living crisis and providing further support to food charities.
We are also optimising supply chain spend to support more small, medium and charitable businesses and have bolstered our commitment to achieving Net Zero Carbon by 2050.
Since our foundation in 1954, Edenred has been committed to supporting communities and the wider planet. This new policy shows how this principle remains at the core of our business as we continue to develop innovative responses to new challenges.
“The way we measure and report our progress in generating social value is advancing as we mature in practice,” said Andy Philpott, Chief Merchant Strategy Officer. “Our method will always reflect the relevant policy legislation including England’s Public Service (Social Value) Act 2012. We are committed to putting value creation for all our stakeholders at the heart of our decision-making.”
