Join us for a discussion exploring how defence companies can take the lead on adopting social value models to prove their commitment to responsible business practices and ensure that their activities create positive outcomes for all stakeholders.
The panel will explore the challenges as well as lessons learnt and share practical advice to help you develop a social value strategy for your own business.
The defence industry carries a colossal responsibility to help keep nations safe and secure. This is the cornerstone of society and without it there can be no sustainability. Achieving sustainable growth means creating value beyond the bottom line, considering the wider impact of business activities on society and the environment.
Not all ideas for creating social value are transferrable across industries. Companies must draw on their unique skills and expertise to focus on the areas where they can make the biggest contribution.
Social value can be deployed in a number of ways, from supporting local employment and training to minimising environmental impact. By taking a lead on adopting the social value model, defence companies can demonstrate their commitment to responsible business practices and ensure that their activities create positive outcomes for all stakeholders.
In this one hour Webinar, we’ll be discussing what defence companies can do to deliver social value. You'll hear how Thales has created a framework for social value around the business’ strengths, to embed the principles throughout its business practices by working alongside partners, suppliers and experts.
