The SIE Fund advocates innovation in business and encourages corporations to apply the Creating Share Valued (CSV) strategy by which a company benefits from a profitable business while addressing specific social issues. The “Shared Value: Creating Competitive Advantage” Forum in 2015 marked the commencement of our Shared Value Initiative. To take our work further, we are embarking on the 2017-18 Initiative with the second Shared Value Forum held on 21 September as the kick-off event. Around 230 leaders from the local and international business, government and civil society attended and participated in discussions, seeking insight from world-renowned speakers and showcases of successful business plans. Check out more about the Forum at the Shared Value Forum 2017 website and stay tuned for other activities that follow.
