Social value networks join up to create 'international force for change'
The Social Impact Analysts Association (SIAA) and The SROI Network are joining forces to create the largest international social value network in the world. SIAA will become Social Value International, and The SROI Network in the UK will become Social Value UK - an affiliated member network of Social Value International.
Social Value International includes members from organisations that are leaders in social impact measurement, ESG, integrated reporting, sustainability and social accounting across charities, social enterprises, corporates, public sector institutions, higher education institutions and think tanks. The vision of Social Value International is for a world in which decision making, ways of working and resource allocation are based on the principles of accounting for value, leading to increased equality and well-being and reduced environmental degradation.
This vision encompasses organisations and initiatives working across the private, public and non-profit sectors. Both the international and UK organisations will continue to be member-led and offer training, accreditation and assurance on SROI and impact measurement. Social Value International will have more than 900 individual and organisational members, across 49 countries.
