We're on a journey to ensure we give back to the communities around us and to safeguard the future of our planet. I am pleased to see that both our centres saw Social Value contributions increase.
Alyson Hodkinson
Social Value Portal’s research and recommendations were invaluable in helping Landsec develop a public benefits offer that was rooted in local needs. It has added a certain powerful context to the current activity on site.
Kate Honey
Using Social Value Portal was a simple way to help us look at what we want to derive in exchange for that space to the benefit of residents and businesses. We looked across our services against a series of TOM measures to understand what to target.

Real Estate FAQs:

Why is Social Value important in real estate?

In real estate, emphasising social value is crucial because property developments can have significant impacts on local communities and environments. By focussing on Social Value, developers can enhance community well-being, promote sustainability and build positive relationships with local stakeholders, potentially increasing the long-term success and acceptance of projects.

How can Social Value Portal help real estate developers?

For real estate developers, the SVP workspace, measurement tools and strategic consulting offerings provide ways to assess the impact of their projects on the community, set targets for improvement and create measurable social value objectives. This can help in developing a clear, strategic approach to maximising the positive impacts of their developments, and in demonstrating their commitment to corporate social responsibility.

What is the Real Estate Social Value Index (RESVI)?
The Real Estate Social Value Index (RESVI) is a tool for measuring, reporting, and improving the Social Value generated by your in-use real estate and infrastructure assets. RESVI works by collecting data from key stakeholders and conducting a diagnostic, grading and Social Value assessment. Users receive a unique asset report, data pack, and portfolio report. Find out more about RESVI.
What are the key components of a place-based Social Value strategy in real estate?

A place-based Social Value strategy involves tailoring development projects to the specific needs and priorities of the local area. Key components include:

  • Needs assessment: Understanding the specific needs of the community where development is planned.
  • Partnership building: Identifying and collaborating with local organisations and stakeholders.
  • Target setting: Establishing clear, measurable goals for social, economic and environmental outcomes.
  • Impact measurement: Using tools like Social Value Portal to track progress and impact.
  • Continuous improvement: Regularly updating the strategy based on feedback and impact assessments to enhance benefits over time.
What are the benefits of maximising social value in real estate projects?

Maximising Social Value in real estate projects offers several benefits:

  • Enhanced reputation: Improving public perception and stakeholder trust, which can lead to smoother project approvals and increased business opportunities.
  • Community support: Gaining support from local communities, which can reduce resistance and foster a cooperative environment.
  • Sustainability: Contributing to environmental sustainability and meeting regulatory standards, which can attract investors and customers interested in sustainable development.
  • Economic benefits: Potentially increasing the economic viability of projects through incentives like tax breaks or expedited permitting processes associated with Social Value initiatives.
