In 2014 the Shared Value Project formalised its relationship with the Shared Value Initiative as the exclusive Regional Partner in Australia and the first global Regional Partner of the Initiative. This relationship sees us working collaboratively to raise awareness and build a global community of shared value practice, with Mark Kramer, FSG Managing Director and ‘Creating Shared Value’ co-founder appointed to our Board of Directors.
The benefits of the partnership are two-fold, complimenting both the Project and Initiative’s commitments, enabling collaborations on projects, providing access to each other’s resources, and cross promoting initiatives, events, research, and publications. This creates a unique set of offerings for both groups’ members, partners, and broader networks, and helps to accelerate the development of shared value in the Australian business community, and influence the acceleration of shared value as a global movement.
The Shared Value Initiative is a global community of leaders who find business opportunities in societal challenges. The Initiative was announced as a Commitment to Action for the Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting in 2012. They connect practitioners in search of the most effective ways to implement shared value. Watch the clip below to learn more.
