Shared Value Awards

Click here for the 2017 winners

With the growth of the shared value community in the Asia Pacific Region, and the pace of change in the movement globally, it is important to celebrate the accomplishments of organisations adopting shared value. Building on the success of the inaugural Awards in 2016, the Shared Value Awards deliver a platform to promote shared value in action.

The Selection Committee, chaired by Joanne Gray, Editor of AFR BOSS, will select winners from a range of different categories and sectors to showcase examples of best practice, and provide inspiration for other companies in the region and further afield to adopt shared value principles.

Awards will be awarded in the following categories:

  • Corporate organisation leading through shared value
  • Civil society organisation leading through shared value
  • Shared value project by an organisation or collaboration
  • Shared Value Champion

Enter your organisation today. Entries can be submitted to more than one category. We are also accepting nominations for Shared Value Champion. Following in the footsteps of the Inaugural Shared Value Champion, Australia’s Foreign Minister, the Hon Julie Bishop MP, now is your opportunity to have your say on who you feel should be recognised as 2017 Shared Value Champion.

Why should I enter the Shared Value Awards?

If your organisation is making shared value a priority, the awards are an opportunity to reflect on your work and have it recognised in front of a growing regional community of practice in the Asia Pacific business sector.

The Shared Value Awards recognise new or existing efforts to address complex social challenges impacting society whilst creating measurable economic benefits and enhancing competitiveness.

The awards will highlight ground-breaking shared value projects and initiatives including:

  • Reconceiving products & markets
  • Redefining productivity in the value chain
  • Enabling local cluster development.

They will also recognise the adoption of shared value as a broader business strategy.

The Shared Value Awards will be presented annually to provide recognition for projects that meet the award criteria.
