Sustainability means many different things to different people. The recent Public services (Social Value) Act in the United Kingdom clearly associates itself with this trend, while not feeling able to produce a definition of Social Value.
We regard the measurement of sustainability impacts as covering all aspects of sustainable procurement, wellbeing, environmental, economic, and social activity. LM3 online delivers hard evidence for sustainability measurement that directly contributes to assessing the impact across all of these areas.
Used together with our Impact Manager software that was developed as part of a research programme with Defra we are able to provide a complete evidence base for the sustainability impact of all organisations whether this be driven by sustainable procurement or other activity across public, private and not for profit organisations.
