Shared value is a management strategy that involves companies finding business opportunities in social and environmental challenges.
Shared value goes beyond the concepts of CSR and CSI. While philanthropy and corporate social investment (CSI) focus on giving back, or minimising the harm business does to society, shared value sees companies gain a competitive advantage by driving social progress. Companies can create shared value through opening up new markets, tapping into skills and pooling resources like research and innovation.
The shared value resources on the Trialogue Knowledge Hub broaden your understanding of what shared value is, globally and in Africa, provides case studies of companies embracing shared value, and offers guidance to help you embed shared value in your company.
