What is social procurement?

Social procurement is the term used when a business procures goods or services of social value. These businesses are choosing to buy goods from other businesses that are committed to dedicating a percentage of annual profits towards achieving a social mission.

These businesses are known as social enterprises – and include many with First Nations ownership. So chances are when you choose to make a purchase from First Nations businesses, you are contributing back to the communities in which they operate and creating positive economic and social outcomes.

Why is it beneficial to have a social procurement strategy?

Introducing a social procurement strategy into your business will redirect your buying power to create social change and give you the ability to track your positive impact in social value. Having a good social procurement strategy offers a range of benefits for your business, your people and the social outcomes you are supporting.
