Unlocking Shared Value, Sydney – 07 September

7 September 2016 | 9:00 am - 8 September 2016 | 5:00 pm

Event Category:

A two-day immersive workshop from ACCSR and Incite (South Africa). Fully updated with Australian case studies. Shared value is not another name for sustainability-as-usual. It speaks to an economic shift that is taking place now, and that offers opportunity to those who develop the skills to work with it. You will leave this course with new tools and perspectives that will enable you to engage this emerging landscape more effectively.

Jointly convened by the Shared Value Project

ACCSR Director Dr. Leeora Black has gone into detail about how to create Shared Value for your stakeholders and organisation. Shared Value is a business strategy that delivers an improved profit formula or new market opportunity by addressing societal challenges. For a project to be a true Shared Value initiative it needs to satisfy four criteria. It must be innovative. It must address a societal problem. It must do so at scale, and it must do so as a business proposition. You can read Dr. Blacks latest blog post here.

Well beyond compliance and traditional corporate social responsibility, shared value is a business growth strategy. It drives growth by addressing societal challenges – at scale – as a business proposition. Shared value strategies require us to rethink productivity across the value chain, reconceive products and markets, and create enabling environments by partnering on cluster developments.

The sustainability landscape is shifting – fast. Compliance with ESG standards is increasingly assumed and standardised; corporate social investment is reinventing itself in the form of business diplomacy; and leading organisations are exploring shared value tools to catalyse innovation and competitive power.

Dr. Leeora Black met with Jonathan Hanks of Incite (South Africa) in Amsterdam following the Shared Value Conference in New York in May 2016. Jonathan discusses some of the exciting takeaways from the upcoming Shared Value Workshop in Sydney on September 07 – 08.
