Trust in shared value

While there has been a plethora of anecdotal evidence to support the important role companies play in tackling social issues, to date there has been a lack of formal research. That changes today with the release of the 2018 Edelman Trust Barometer in Australia. The research indicates that an increasing number of Australians expect CEOs and their companies to take the lead and take on roles traditionally played by government.  Shared value can play a vital role in assisting CEOs and their businesses to address social needs, which is a must when institutional trust is at an all time low.

Trust will also be an important topic of conversation at the 2018 Shared Value Summit Asia Pacific to be held in Sydney, 18 April.  Antonio Cammisecra, CEO Enel Green Power - one of several international speakers - will share his wisdom alongside shared value expert and global thought leader Mark Kramer.  I invite you all to join us for what is shaping up to be our most exciting conference yet.

With a full program of events already planned for 2018, I am delighted to welcome two new SVP team members, our Partnerships Manager Sarah Bailey and our Office Manager Julie Cooper. I encourage you to reach out and connect with them in the coming weeks.

Australians trust CEOs to tackle social issues

The 2018 Edelman Trust Barometer has revealed that almost two-thirds of Australians believe CEOs should take the lead on change, rather than wait for government to impose it. With Australian government, business, media and non-government organisations all classified as ‘distrusted’ for the first time since 2013, shared value may provide a framework for CEOs to use when taking the lead on change.
