It’s no longer enough for a company to just be profitable, or even responsible.
New generations expect business to have a greater purpose – improve society and the environment, well beyond CSR. The SDGs demand private sector action at speed and at scale. For this, Creating Shared Value (CSV) is a compelling business approach and framework, defined by Harvard strategy authority Michael Porter, for companies to innovate products, services or profitable value chain models with measurable, scalable social impact.
The CSV movement is growing in Hong Kong, and there’s high potential for collaboration between social change makers, impact ventures and Shared Value companies.
For this meetup, we’re happy to have Martina Mok, Head of Programmes & Partnerships, Shared Value Project HK, share this concept with us, with local/regional examples including Nestlé and AIA.
We’ll also have another perspective (to be revealed), followed by group discussion on how this fits into the social innovation ecosystem.
Save the date and stay tuned for updates!
