How to create shared value

Shared value brings purpose into the boardroom, enabling business to lead societal progress while making profit. Where to start?

Going beyond


Companies are falling in love with the idea of purpose. And what’s not to love? Done well, a corporate purpose is energizing, inspiring, and creates a shared reason for being. But is simply declaring a purpose beyond profits enough? We think not.

Putting a company’s purpose into practice through shared value will drive impact at scale and enhance the company’s competitiveness. How to seize business opportunities nesting in this quest for purpose?

With case studies gathered over the last decade, we work with business leaders to transform purpose into action through organisational change. Our evidence-based approach accelerates shared value practices within companies.

Beyond zero

an inspirational kickstarter

As partner of the 100 Months to Change coalition, we hold the exclusive rights in Hong Kong SAR and Mainland China for the powerful documentary film telling the story of the sustainability journey at Interface. Screenings of this film are a great way to open up conversations and get people to lead the change in their organisation.

The Purpose


The Purpose Playbook gathers practices, action steps, and company examples that help changemakers pioneer transformation in their company and business ecosystem for society. 


Education Tools

We curate a proven gamified process to engage people in the critical work of transformation. Our experiences lead participants to deeply ingrain their understanding of the world’s biggest issues, the human power of change, and step into the shoes of their ecosystem stakeholders.
