Building a global Social Procurement Community of Practice

Social procurement has been expanding steadily in recent years – but there is huge potential for more. According to the World Bank, global procurement spending in 2019 was at least $14 trillion USD. Even a small percentage of this directed towards social procurement would have an enormous impact.

Most social enterprise intermediaries have a local or national remit and struggle to support international requests for assistance or to stay informed of developments around the world. At SEWF, we are working with Euclid Network to convene stakeholders, disseminate information and signpost those interested in social procurement to improve and accelerate the development of social procurement. We built the global Social Procurement Community of Practice (COP) to increase the capacity and capability of the sector.

The COP is a member-only community for those working directly in social procurement. Together we will build a collaborative online community that will help us create social and environmental impact by growing social procurement activity with social enterprise around the world.
