The Shared Value Initiative is not the lone enterprise of a select few. It unites the leadership and expertise of some of the most influential and innovative global organizations.

Our experienced team of partners features some of the world’s leading brands, including an advisory level Leadership Council comprised of Verizon, Nestlé, the Rockefeller Foundation and Mercy Corps. These organizations, and many others, are leading the way on shared value adoption, and have committed to putting the intersection of business growth and social impact in the public sphere.

3BL (triple bottom line) Associates is a people + planet strategy consultancy that was established to re-imagine a more sustainable Middle East. 

We recognize that in a world of complexity, crosscutting issues like peace, health and climate change cannot be solved in silo. We work at the intersection of these issues through a systems-thinking approach. As a hybrid social enterprise, we have two arms: 

(1) Our consultancy is market-driving through providing social impact and sustainability consultancy services to companies, government, and civil society. 

(2) Our think-do-tank is market-creating through incubating and spinning off our own socially entrepreneurial ventures that address sustainable development issues, as well as contributing thought leadership.

Avanzi consults across several issues: shared value (assessment, strategy, implementation, accountability); CSR (assessment, strategy, implementation, accountability); and corporate philanthropy (strategy, pilot projects).

Steve Davis
CEO, PATH,
"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."
