This is technically incorrect. It makes the terrain very confusing to navigate. And we risk losing the value of each of the different elements. The following diagram clarifies our use of these terms: The term sustainability will always mean different things to different people.

Cincinnati, OH. –The National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) Retail Advisory Board and global strategy firm The Partnering Group today released a report to help retailers and suppliers establish joint business plans to align and optimize shared business goals.

The report, “Creating Value Together,” identifies ten key industry findings to help companies establish strong joint business plans with their trading partners. Joint business planning is a collaborative process between a retailer and/or distributor and a manufacturer and/or supplier in which both parties align on short- and long-term financial goals for their shared business. “According to the findings in this report, one of the biggest challenges is the amount of time it takes to complete a joint business plan with a trading partner,” said NACDS President and CEO Steven C.

Anderson, IOM, CAE. CSV pitch. Retail – Creating Shared Value « The Partnering Group. The Opportunity As retailers continue to embrace corporate responsibility, there is a greater emphasis on identifying how shareholder-oriented motives can simultaneously and positively impact society. Creating shared value (CSV) is a corporate philosophical shift, recognizing that retailers win when society (including the environment) wins. CSV often reshapes the manner in which a retailer, a “village” in its own right, interacts with communities throughout every aspect of the supplier-distributor-retail value chain.

Leading retailers are proving that CSV is not only the right thing to do…it enhances the organization’s culture, ways of working and bottom line. Shared value « Search Results « The Partnering Group.

Fifteen years ago, when 40 companies formed the Global Compact at the United Nations, they laid out the principles for a more inclusive and sustainable world. UN Secretary General Kofi Annan called for a “global compact of shared values and principles, which will give a human face to the global market.”

Today, as I address the assembled members of the UN Global Compact, I urge business leaders to consider how that “human face” of the global market is needed more urgently today than ever. The 21st century has been a marked period of personalization and humanization. Our ever expanding technology has made it possible to reach out and touch more people than ever before. It also requires us to stop and think about how we affect all of those we come into contact with. Today, a fruit vendor and a few friends with camera phones can spark a revolution that topples dictatorships throughout an entire region. How can we shape a new face of leadership for a more Human Economy? Prof. Michael Porter Shared Value Summit. CSV Explained - Institute For Strategy And Competitiveness - Harvard Business School. Creating Shared Value - Institute For Strategy And Competitiveness - Harvard Business School. The Impact of Values and Culture on CSR. Most of what I’ve written for Forbes over the last year has focused on a global view of the social purpose of business.

Recently, however, I started wondering about the ways in which CSR varies based on the country where a corporation is located. In what ways do the elements of CSR change based on where it’s practiced? Is there a unique approach to corporate social responsibility that differs from one country to the next? In what ways does the social purpose of a business reflect the values and culture of the country (or countries) where it operates? I recognize that these are big questions and I thought it would be appropriate to begin exploring this where I live in Canada. “Canadian culture has long been influenced by our relationship to the environment and energy has long played a significant role in the Canadian story of that relationship,” said Tom Heintzman, President of Bullfrog Power a company that is founded on a belief that consumers have a unique ability to change the world.

Photo Credit: itsallaboutimagination.com In the past year, I’ve met with scores of new people and talked about how the research and consulting company I help lead, China Youthology, had launched a non-profit platform to directly engage youth called Open Youthology. The most common response I get is, “Are you an NGO?” It puzzled me why so many people couldn’t see the logic: Investing directly in what’s good for the community will secure what’s good for business.

I also felt a little anxious; why were we the only ones doing this? Are we totally wrong? Then, in January 2011, validation came. The concept of Shared Value recognizes that societal needs, not just conventional economic needs, define markets. The article laid out paragraph by paragraph, with numerous supporting case examples, everything my partners and I believed and are trying to build at China Youthology. Welcome to Forbes.

Whether they are empowering women, teaching technology skills, or connecting entrepreneurs, many forward-thinking companies are discovering that the key to sustainable social investing is creating programs with shared value for businesses and communities.
