Social Value Portal shortlisted for 2017 National CSR Awards

We are pleased to announce we have been shortlisted for ‘Best Sustainable Small Business’ at the 2017 National CSR Awards for our work with Harrow council.

Harrow Council wanted to put out a tender for a council property renovation, with the aim of awarding the contract to the supplier who not only offered the best in terms of price and quality, but also the strongest CSR programme.

Using our Portal we assessed each CSR proposal in terms of financial value, and the eventual winner offered an additional value of £440,000 (+43%) to the community. You can read more about our work with Harrow council here.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony and gala dinner at Lord’s Cricket Ground in London on Thursday 18th May where attendees will be addressed by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rt. Hon. Philip Hammond MP.

You can check who’s in the running here.

Find out more about the event and booking information.
