About Shared Value Initiative Hong Kong

The Shared Value Project is leading the development of Shared Value in Hong Kong through advocacy, a knowledge repository, peer to peer sharing, and practice. As part of the Shared Value Initiative global network, we aim to align profit with purpose and harness the strengths of big business to address complex social issues in Hong Kong and regionally. We promote the competitive advantages gained by strategically aligning business to create social impact. The business case for shared value creation (as defined in Michael Porter and Mark Kramer’s HBR article) is compelling. As a corporate-funded not for profit, Shared Value Initiative Hong Kong will provide a partnership platform and facilitate tri-sector collaboration on projects of common interest. Leading the development /adoption of shared value creation by example, our first initiatives will be in the areas of HK’s mental health and Youth Development, and we will shortly be scoping the projects. The goal is to create sustainable, scalable business opportunities that at the same time address factors that otherwise contribute to large scale social issues.

It’s a forum for discussion, a platform for ideas exchange, a stage for speaking and a sandpit for experimentation, ideation and creativity. We have turned to the session leaders themselves for their key takeaways, asking them how their learnings from the 2020 event can be used to build back better with Shared Value.
