Global leaders who drive shared value:

Tony O. Elumelu
"Economic prosperity and social wealth must go hand in hand for maximum impact. Success cannot be measured purely in economic terms, and Heirs Holdings’ investment activities aren't strictly driven by profitability—though our ultimate responsibility to our shareholders remains creating economic value for them."
Tony O. Elumelu  Chairman, Heirs Holdings
Michael E. Porter
“The purpose of the corporation must be redefined as creating shared value, not just profit per se. This will drive the next wave of innovation and productivity growth in the global economy.”
Michael E. Porter  Bishop William Lawrence University Professor, Harvard Business School, 
Yoshinori Isozaki
"Our biggest challenge was to commit to shared value by launching a specific division carrying its name when the concept had not yet permeated in Japanese companies. I met Professor Michael Porter when he was visiting Japan and was encouraged by him in launching the division."
Yoshinori Isozaki  CEO, Kirin Company
Steve Davis
"We cannot do this alone. Almost every major 21st century problem we have to address has to be done through very deep multi-sector partnerships; in which we identify where we hold common interest and then we collaborate with the best each of us can bring to the table to solve those social problems."
Steve Davis  CEO, PATH
Beth Keck
"We are convinced that taking on large social issues is compatible with building stronger business at Walmart. Our investment in training women in agriculture is increasing food availability. Our workforce training initiatives are improving opportunities and livelihoods for women – and some of those are our customers."
Beth Keck  Senior Director of Women’s Economic Empowerment, Walmart
