Shared Value Project
A platform for change

Greetings from Boston where SVP is leading a delegation at the 2019 Shared Value Leadership Summit. We look forward to sharing our learnings and insights with you on Twitter and LinkedIn.

Five years after launching SVP in the Asia Pacific, the shared value conversation continues to gain momentum; and with global uncertainty and social divisions only deepening, there could be no better time for businesses to look beyond the balance sheet to the social areas intrinsically linked to their operations.

The 2019 State of Shared Value in Australia and New Zealand Report echoes this sentiment, and provides 10 important steps that companies can take to embed and enact shared value in their organisation. The report highlights the continued growth of shared value in the region, but suggests we still have some way to go before it reaches its maturity in Australia and New Zealand.

To this end, with the 2019 federal election fast approaching, SVP has considered some of the key opportunities for the government to support the continued growth of shared value in our region.

I encourage you to share your ideas and impress on our major parties that if they are serious about growing the economy and addressing pressing social issues, they must strengthen the ties between the private and public sector.

Helen Steel
Chief Executive Officer
