Buy Social Canada on The Role of Social Procurement in Creating Shared Value
During this episode, David Lepage, Managing Director of Buy Social Canada discusses alternative capital such as social, community, and the happiness index for measuring community health. David outlines for us the shared value creation the procurement process can create when community and public good is at its centre.
“Every purchase has an economic, environmental and social impact, whether intended or not. Social procurement is about capturing those impacts and seeking to make intentional positive contributions to both the local economy and the overall vibrancy of the community.” David Lepage of Buy Social Canada
