Thought for tomorrow: social value

first_imgGoogle “social value” and you’re faced with a barrage of complex and often convoluted definitions. Somehow, along the way, something that was intended as a force for good is now perceived as mystical, or even whimsical. Nobody’s sure what it is, or how to deliver it.Of course, the spotlight is on the delivery of social value now more than ever before. Chris White MP’s Review of the Social Value Act pressed for organisations to account for social value rather than just consider it, and the Social Housing Green Paper has been unequivocal about the issues of community fragmentation and stigma.Nonetheless, there is still a tendency for organisations to see social value as something detached from the day-to-day running of a profitable business. The reality, of course, is quite different.What is social value? Well, it’s just common sense. We are all stakeholders in society. We have our own unique requirements and needs but far from being boxed and ring-fenced, these needs are inter-reliant. Put simply, if we help others, we help ourselves.Supporting society matters now more than ever before. Since the 1960s we have seen the slow but certain decline of the “job for life”.In a post-industrial era, we no longer have a situation where work offers ready-made communities. We need to stop believing that business exists outside of society and start recognising the common space that unites us all. It is only then that our sector will truly understand that social value actually translates as benefits to society. And as an integral part of this society, our organisations stand to profit too.Kevin O’Connor is head of social responsibility and inclusion at Durkanlast_img read more

Wilh. Wilhelmsen sees slight rise in cargo as Q3 net profit stumbles

first_imgThe company, a part owner of Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics, EUKOR Car Carriers and American Roll-on Roll-off Carrier, said the “third quarter volumes indicate the start of a soft recovery.”Revenue for the quarter ending September 30 was USD604.9 million, compared to USD866.6 million for the same period 2008.”The current market puts severe pressure on earnings for the shipping segment. However, the third quarter shows signs of market recovery, albeit at a slow pace,” said Thomas Wilhelmsen, deputy group chief executive officer. From the second to third quarters, the company reported a 7 percent increase in cargo volumes as measured in cubic metres.”The market affects our shipping companies very differently. Compared with last year, Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics has experienced a substantial drop in volumes and change in cargo composition and trades. EUKOR Car Carriers and American Roll-on Roll-off Carrier deliver satisfying results and have not experienced a similar drop in volumes. We predict that the current low inventory levels and effects of governmental stimulus programmes will impact cargo volumes going forward, but the effect is at present uncertain,” Wilhelmsen said.Demand for ro-ro cargo, mainly construction and mining machinery, remained at a low level in the third quarter, still suffering from slow construction and mining activity.”The outlook for ro-ro volumes is more uncertain in the short term. Demand is highly dependent on government stimulus packages aimed at construction activity. These are expected to come into effect from 2010. Together with improved housing markets, primarily in the US, demand for heavy construction machinery should pick up from next year,” Wilhelmsen added.last_img read more
