On May 13-14, 2014, over 400 fellow shared value practitioners met in New York to advance an exciting corporate movement that’s making real, sustainable change. This cross-sector community came together with the common belief that business has the potential to find better solutions to our world’s biggest problems—in ways that help people and profits.
As a network, we learned that shared value has moved beyond the idea stage to implementation. Leaders from organizations across the world shared stories of how they're driving shared value—in their investment decisions, in branding, in daily strategy execution, in collaborative partnerships, and more.
In his closing remarks, FSG founder Mark Kramer told the audience: "You are the vanguard" when it comes to driving and implementing shared value around the world. Although progress is clear, our work has only just begun. And so, as leaders and practitioners of shared value, moving forward we must ask ourselves a new question:
