Leonardo joins Social Value UK

02 February 2023

Reflecting the depth of the company's commitment to developing social value across its organisation, Leonardo has become a member of Social Value UK (SVUK).

SVUK works with its members to change the way they account for social value, in order to create a world where organisational decisions improve wellbeing, equality and the environment.

Leonardo hopes to maximise the benefits of its SVUK membership, by increasing awareness of the latest best practice and innovations in the field of social value, to assess its viability for its business.

Clive Higgins, Chair and CEO of Leonardo UK, said: “I am very pleased and excited by our membership of Social Value UK. Our responsibilities to support, enrich and develop the local communities we serve both socially and economically are of key importance. The work of Leonardo employees in our various outreach programmes not only demonstrates our long-term commitment to social value, but continues to deepen and enhance the strong ties we have within all the communities we serve, making a real and meaningful difference. Working with Social Value UK, we will continue to evolve our approach, ensuring we deliver more for all our stakeholders and add momentum to the positive change that is being delivered."

Leonardo views social value as being central to its current and future activities, as it magnifies our contribution to industry and society.

The company evaluates proposals, programmes and contracts not just in terms of their ability to deliver on capability or technology, but also from the point of view of their potential to impact on the economy, the natural environment and society.

Leonardo aspires to build a future for everyone. We integrate social value into our business, to create long-term value and generate positive economic, social, and environmental impacts for the company, clients, and the communities in which we operate. Throughout our entire value chain, we are committed to embedding social value within our initiatives, our projects, and our ways of working.
