Claritas Solutions achieves Social Value Quality Mark (SVQM) Bronze
• We have achieved SVQM Bronze
• We had to make a series of commitments to create, measure and independently report on social value
• The SVQM will be a competitive differentiator for us
• It will provide independent validation of Claritas’s Social Value credentials
We’re very excited to announce we have achieved SVQM Bronze, a mark that recognises the highest known standards in values-led business and evidences our commitment as an organisation to ensuring our operations bring societal benefits.
It has never been more important than now for local businesses that can, to put their shoulder to the wheel and help grow the economy, help and support communities and commit to environmental responsibility. This award of the Social Value Quality Mark is a very welcome commitment on our part to our local community.
Continuing the Journey
This adds to the collection of accolades the business has achieved over the last 12 months. We have embarked on the journey, in order to do our part in being sustainable and caring for our people, which includes achieving Support the Goals 4 Stars and being a Great Place to Work. We believe this serves as a beacon illuminating the path we are taking towards a brighter, more conscientious future for our business.
First and foremost, sustainability awards provide a platform for organisations to showcase their commitment to environmental stewardship, resource efficiency, and social responsibility. In today’s increasingly eco-conscious landscape, consumers and stakeholders alike are placing greater emphasis on supporting businesses that prioritise sustainability. With Social Value now mandated for all central government procurements with a minimum weighting of 10%, we believe the SVQM will be a competitive differentiator for us and provide independent validation of Claritas’s Social Value credentials.
Supports Our Charitable Work
This work adds and supports to the great charitable effort we have been doing over the last year or so with Martin House children’s hospice, which has seen the team raise nearly £6k in donations, demonstrating our commitment to our corporate social responsibility, and contributes to long-term sustainable success.
To gain the Bronze Quality Mark, Claritas Solutions had to make a series of commitments to create, measure and independently report their social value. Pledges were made across the themes of skills development, wellbeing, investing in local communities, charitable giving and carbon reduction.
Richard Dickins, MD of Social Value Quality Mark CIC, said:
“Customers, investors and jobseekers increasingly place their loyalty with organisations who deliver clear social and environmental benefits. The Quality Mark separates, distinguishes and celebrates those businesses who are genuinely committed to making the world a fairer place. We are pleased that Claritas Solutions is joining the growing number of companies making this commitment.”
Jenny Bell, Marketing Manager
“As the sustainability lead, I am immensely proud of our team’s dedication and the remarkable achievement of this award. It signifies not only a milestone but also the commencement of an inspiring journey towards greater environmental stewardship and social responsibility. Together, we will continue to innovate, collaborate, and lead by example, ensuring a sustainable future for generations to come.”
