July 7, 2021 /3BL Media/ - The Canadian Social Value Exchange (#SVCANEX) is an ongoing series of gatherings for Social Value Canda members, thought leaders and practitioners across the breadth of the social value community.

As an active network at the heart of Social Value International, #SVCANEX is convening vibrant, essential and urgent discussion on how valuing social and environmental impact must be embedded into the heart of decision making.

Given the need for global action, it has never been more important to engage in strategies that will increase wellbeing, equality and achieve a sustainable future for us all. Addressing the global climate crisis requires addressing poverty and inequality in step with all environmental actions.

On July 8, #SVCANEX will focus on three core topics:

  • How are procurement decisions informed when social and environmental impact is valued?

  • Emerging disclosure of natural, human and social impact within corporate financial statements

  • How Social Value Canada can support the work of natural, human and social sustainability networks and initiatives

Hear from thought leaders from a variety of perspectives across the social value agenda.
