Creating Shared Value

Q: What is Creating Shared Value as a business concept?

A: Creating shared value is a business model for creating economic value while simultaneously addressing certain societal needs and challenges related to a company’s operations and footprint. Businesses can improve profitability while also improving things like environmental performance, public health and nutrition, affordable housing, and other key measures of societal wellbeing. Business can create economic prosperity by meeting societal needs or helping to solve social issues related to their industry while making a profit, creating infinitely scalable and self-sustaining solutions, and growing long term mutually beneficial business and community relationships.
