Creating social value for a brighter future
Compass Group UK & Ireland is committed to creating social value in the communities that it operates in. Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) relates to the positive impact that organisations can have on society and the environment in addition to traditional turnover and profits.
Social value measures the positive value that businesses create for the economy, communities and society. It’s how we measure the social impact of our three company promises: Our Climate Promise and Our Social Promise. We also have a dedicated network of Social Value Ambassadors to ensure we deliver our social agenda through, and beyond, our business every day.
We are delighted to say that using the National Themes, Outcomes and Measures (TOMs) framework for 2021, we created nearly £600 million in social and local economic value (SLEV). More than £3 million of this was in social value.
Laura Neville, Head of Social Value
"Compass Group UK & Ireland employs thousands of people, supporting many clients – therefore sharing best practice and ideas in social value will have a huge impact for us and those we work with."
