A group of high-profile businesses is aiming to collectively spend
£1 billion with social enterprises through their procurement.
The Buy Social Corporate Challenge is a simple initiative with a bold ambition: that a group of 30 high-profile, large-scale businesses can collectively spend £1 billion with social enterprises through their procurement by 2026.
Led by Social Enterprise UK (SEUK) in partnership with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport, the Buy Social Corporate Challenge was launched in Downing Street in April 2016 with seven Founding Partners.
SEUK has created a package of strategic engagement, guidance and brokerage that supports Buy Social Corporate Challenge partner companies to identify, onboard and work effectively with social enterprises with the right products, services and scale for their procurement needs, and ensures social enterprises are supported through the onboarding and delivery of their goods or services.
