Social return on investment report
At British Gypsum, we strive to be a good neighbour and a great place to work. Our social return on investment (SROI) report lets us understand how well we already do this, and the impact we have from the perspective of our stakeholders.
It explores the social, environmental and economic value we create for our colleagues and local communities, looking at factors such as support for local causes, environmental activity, and career opportunities.
The report transforms qualitative information into measurable data, placing a monetary figure on the value we create for every £1 we invest. Our annual SROI report allows us to benchmark our success against the previous year and evaluate our progress over time.
The report’s recommendations also help inform our Building Better Communities programme, launched in 2021. This supports our goal of making the world a better home by helping both our local communities and colleagues flourish. As we learn more about what our local communities need from us and support projects and causes that have a positive impact, we hope to see this reflected in the value demonstrated in our annual SROI reports.
