Social Value

Through our people and relationships, we refine, implement, embed and support social value within organisational process to demonstrate positive societal contributions through adoption of best practice tools and techniques.


Our team 

The team at BlueLight Commercial is dedicated to providing exceptional service to our stakeholders, building a sustainability network of likeminded professionals, maximising our positive impact on communities and the environment. We believe that by working collaboratively we can enhance the impact of procurement and deliver improved public services and responsible outcomes that benefits all stakeholders.

Our expertise

Well versed in the implications of the Social Value Act (England) 2015 and the Well-Being of Future Generations (Welsh) Act 2015, we encourage stakeholders to change behaviours and work together in a way that protects the environment, workers’ rights, prioritises individuals’ mental and physical wellbeing, and places these key areas of importance at the centre of all decision making and procurement processes.

We ensure that BlueLight Commercial leads by example so that we can provide Social Value support to stakeholders, delivering wider social, economic and environmental benefits through procurement. We work with our stakeholders to embed core principles for social value measurement and analysis, to refine and share practice, and to build a powerful movement of like-minded people to influence positive impact. Our goal is to support, connect and represent our stakeholders and suppliers through training, knowledge-sharing and networking.

How we can help

We aim to change the way in which value is accounted for through policy, best practice, people and power. We believe in helping to create a world where decision making, leadership and ways of working are based on the principles of inclusion of social, economic, and environmental decision making leading to increased equality and well-being and reduced environmental degradation.

Principles: Inclusion of social, environmental and economic value in decision making and commissioning of goods and services.

People: We will support our stakeholders and build a network of like-minded individuals who want to work with us to put our principles into practice.

Practice: We will develop guidance, tools, and support to help put the principles into practice.

Power: By connecting our stakeholders internally and externally supporting their learning, growth and influence we will build a movement to change the way our organisations and society account for value.
