“Creation of Shared Value” Concept Comes to Australia
Thursday, 20th September 2012 at 9:50 am
SPONSORED: The co-author of the ground-breaking “Creation of Shared Value” concept and a Senior Fellow at Harvard Kennedy School of Government, Mark Kramer will speak exclusively at a Forum hosted by 3 Pillars Network in Melbourne in November.
In 2011, the Harvard Business Review published a provocative article, The Big Idea: Creation of Shared Value by Mark Kramer and Michael Porter. Kramer and Porter's Creation of Shared Value approach is expected to transform the face of business.
Creating Shared Value (CSV) means going beyond CSR, and developing and implementing policies and operating practices that enhance the competitiveness of a company while also advancing the economic and social conditions in which that company operates.
CSV represents the next wave of social responsibility and community investment.
Early adopters include Nestle, National Australia Bank, IBM, IAG and Telstra
Mark Kramer will be the guest speaker at the Creation of Shared Value Forum in Melbourne on 14 November. Pro Bono Australia is a media partner of the Forum.
Held in partnership with National Australia Bank and Net Balance, this one-day forum brings together world leading experts with senior Australian business executives and community leaders to discuss strategies for managing and implementing authentic shared value principles.
