ASVB Gains Social Traders Certification

Posted on the 26th June 2019

The Australian Social Value Bank (ASVB) is proud to announce we have recently achieved Social Traders Certification, joining a community of Australian businesses that are driven by a social purpose.Social Traders Logo

Social Traders exists to create jobs for disadvantaged Australians by linking business and government buyers with social enterprises.

The Australian Social Value Bank was developed to put a well-researched economic value on the services and programs organisations deliver and the individuals they help. The ASVB is the largest bank of methodologically consistent and robust social values ever produced in Australia.

Our goal in joining this network is to connect with like-minded organisations and provide our social impact measurement solution to a greater number of Australian businesses, not-for-profits and government agencies.

Since 2008, Social Traders has facilitated deals between buyers and social enterprises worth $30million and supported 400 jobs for disadvantaged people.

We look forward to the rewards this membership will bring, and the ways we can work with a community of organisations who share our values to achieve a wonderful outcome for all involved.
