Adding social value is an ethos that runs right through our business.

At Bouygues UK, we define social value as any activity that enhances people’s lives and the communities within with we work. We believe that by improving the conditions of the wider community, we can in turn reduce inequality, improve wellbeing and inclusion to deliver prosperity for all.

Throughout 2023, our teams across the UK worked tirelessly to continue to enhance the lives of the people in the communities within which we work and deliver our social value mission.

In 2023, across our sites we delivered:

million worth of added social and local economic value
weeks of apprenticeships
hours dedicated to supporting young people into work

As a business, we need to be truly responsible to ensure our impact is positive for future generations. Each of our projects provides a chance to change lives and benefit the environment around us and we are committed to ensuring we seize every opportunity.

It is our mission to continue working with colleagues, clients and stakeholders who have the same passion and enthusiasm to drive the future for our next generation, adding value wherever we can.

To put it simply, social value is about doing the right thing and giving back. This does not have to be a grand gesture, it is about helping those who may be less fortunate than yourself. To me, social value means morally doing the right thing, even a small gesture or a good deed can have a profound impact on someone’s life.

Jeff Joseph, Head of Social Value for London and the South East

To me, social value encompasses the positive impact made on people’s lives through actions that prioritise well-being and community engagement. At Bouygues UK, our goal is simple: build a sustainable future, together. We achieve this by providing practical support that tackles immediate needs and paves the way for long-term prosperity.

Donna Griffiths, Head of Social Value for the South West and Wales

Social value is embedded into what we do at Bouygues UK, and we are fortunate to have a great dedicated team who are motivated by challenge, genuine passions to apply their knowledge, skills, and experience to make a difference.

We know that being truly responsible means putting social value at the heart of everything we do; from the leadership to the business plan; from our culture and the way we behave to the way that we measure our impact.

It was an absolute pleasure to join the team at Wornington Green…The morale on site was fantastic and we could see the level of passion and drive in all individuals we spoke to…We also can’t forget to mention how great it was to see all the social value work Bouygues UK is achieving in the local community…We are proud of our partnership with Bouygues UK and look forward to hearing more on the site progression.
