Event // Shared Value
Helping to solve society’s problems in a profitable, sustainable and scalable way.
Sydney CBD // Thursday 23 March 2017
No single person or organisation can address the wide array of issues our society is currently facing. In fact, for society to make substantive progress, business can, and should, be playing a more important role than traditional Corporate Social Responsibility where social impact is made through donating a portion of profits, directing volunteerism and avoiding damaging business practices. These efforts, while important and impactful, are not a sustainable way to solve society’s problems.
What to expect
This session will provide a forum for discussing the powerful concept of Creating Shared Value (CSV) as an integral part of an organisation’s business strategy. CSV originated in a seminal article in the Harvard Business Review by corporate strategy legend Prof Michael Porter and fellow luminary Mark Kramer. It describes a new way of thinking whereby solutions for solving society’s problems can be profitable, innovative and make the world a better place at the same time.
We’ll be discussing what shared value means, the role of business in solving society’s problems in a profitable, sustainable and scalable way, how Australian corporate companies and not-for-profit organisations are adopting shared value to make a difference and gain competitive advantage, as well as how you might be able to get started on a Shared Value journey.
