Slide 2
Social Value Principles and Practice Assurance

The Principles of Social Value provide the basic building blocks for anyone who wants to make decisions to optimize social value. They represent a comprehensive set of generally accepted social accounting principles. Conducting practice assurance against the Social Value Principles enables organisations and practitioners to check the robustness of their impact measurement and management (IMM) practices.

Slide 3
Going Beyond ESG: Embedding the SDGs in IMM

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) challenge all governments, businesses and investors to measure and manage their impact on people and the planet – positive and negative, intended and unintended. To avoid “SDG-washing” which will unavoidably lead to SDG-exhaustion, organisations should embed in impact measurement and management (IMM) practices in effective ways, in line with best practice frameworks such as the UNDP SDG Impact Standards and the SVI’s Social Value Principles.

What Is Social Value?

Social value is about understanding the relative importance that people place on
changes to their wellbeing and using the insights we gain from this understanding to
make better decisions. By taking this relative importance into account we can ensure
that the decisions we make focus on what is valuable to people, and through this we
can start to increase the positive and reduce the negative effects and ultimately
increase the overall value of our work.

Our vision for the Social Value Movement is to change the way society accounts for
value through principles, practice, people and power, where decision-making is
based on accounts of value to reduce inequality and environmental degradation and
improve planetary and social well-being. Social Value Hong Kong, a member
network of Social Value International, supports the Social Value Movement through
knowledge building and the provision of training and assurance services.
