“UK Olympus recognises that respect for society and the environment is a critical success factor. The UK government’s application of Social Value was a new model for us, understanding it was vital to effectively describe our strengths and determine our route map to achieving the ISO 26000 standard. As well as being the ‘right thing’ to do, the application of ISO 26000 is increasingly viewed as a way of assessing an organisation’s commitment to its community and sustainability and its overall performance.”

“Epscot assisted us all the way in this journey. Their Social Value team supported us through accelerated understanding and deployment of Social Value, translating this very complex guidance into an easy-to-understand ongoing working practice via their tools and methodology. With their full engagement and help, we have achieved recognition of this standard quickly and we are now leading the way to new levels of social responsibility.”
