Shared Value Project Hong Kong

About Shared Value Project Hong Kong

The Shared Value Project is leading the development of Shared Value in Hong Kong through advocacy, a knowledge repository, peer to peer sharing, and practice. As part of the Shared Value Initiative global network, we aim to align profit with purpose and harness the strengths of big business to address complex social issues in Hong Kong and regionally. We promote the competitive advantages gained by strategically aligning business to create social impact. The business case for shared value creation (as defined in Michael Porter and Mark Kramer’s HBR article) is compelling. As a corporate-funded not for profit, Shared Value Project Hong Kong will provide a partnership platform and facilitate tri-sector collaboration on projects of common interest. Leading the development /adoption of shared value creation by example, our first initiatives will be in the areas of HK’s mental health and Youth Development, and we will shortly be scoping the projects. The goal is to create sustainable, scalable business opportunities that at the same time address factors that otherwise contribute to large scale social issues.

Learnings from CREATIVE COLLISION 2020

By |2020-12-02T14:06:22+08:00November 26th, 2020|

CREATIVE COLLISION defies description, which is why we always use the term “non-conference”. It’s a forum for discussion, a platform for ideas exchange, a stage for speaking and a sandpit for experimentation, ideation and creativity. Most of all however, it is a place where large and small businesses, NGOs and social innovators, academia and government can meet to spark ideas and forge unlikely partnerships. We have turned to the session leaders themselves for their key takeaways, asking them how their learnings from the 2020 event can be used to build back better with Shared Value.

Partnerships to Create Shared Value

ReThink, Hong Kong’s sustainability forum held 28-29 October, set itself a high bar by asking from the outset, how can we help businesses accelerate change towards a more sustainable future? Moderated by SVPHK CEO Gaëlle Loiseau, the panel 'Effective partnerships with positive impact on Hong Kong's ecosystem’, dug deep into this question by focusing on the ‘how’, and recognising that attempting change at scale in isolation is futile unless players join together for greater impact and intentional Shared Value.

There’s a new business movement percolating in Hong Kong which is causing companies, large and small, to re-think how and why they will operate in a post-pandemic society. The concept of embedding purpose, as well as profit, in business strategy has been introduced to members of the British Chamber of Commerce by the Hong Kong chapter of a global initiative which has grown out of Harvard Business School.
