While companies are the drivers of shared value strategies, the public sector plays an essential role in enabling and promoting shared value creation. This appendix highlights how governments can help accelerate the adoption and implementation of shared value by serving as knowledge brokers, convening key players, acting as operating partners, changing the risk-reward profile for shared value opportunities, and creating more supportive regulatory environments. When governments do not actively encourage shared value investments that align with their development agenda, they miss an opportunity to leverage the resources and creativity of the private sector.
