Prosocial Place is working closely with Liverpool City Council, the Social Enterprise Network and the University of Liverpool to deliver the Liverpool Social Value Charter, 10% More.
The Charter is a set of guiding principles to make doing business in Liverpool more ethical, greener and community-focused. With the full backing of the Mayor of Liverpool, the Charter is based on the fundamental understanding that integrating social value into decision making not only creates benefits for others but also provides tangible business advantages. The principles are:
1. Local Liverpool Employment
2. Buy Local, Buy Social
3. Supporting Liverpool Communities
4. Welfare and Wellbeing in Employment
5. Green Sustainable Liverpool
6. Ethical Liverpool Procurement
The full Charter can be downloaded here http://www.sentogether.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Social-Value-Charter.pdf. All Charter signatories will make a positive commitment to improving the economic, social and environmental well-being of Liverpool through their activities. These contributions will include outcomes such as creating apprenticeships, local jobs and supply chain opportunities through the intelligent commissioning and procurement of goods and services.
