Creating Shared Value

A shift in business thinking is creating new opportunities for competitive advantage, corporate profitability, and social impact, according to FSG co-founders Michael E. Porter and Mark Kramer in The Big Idea: Creating Shared Value, the featured cover story in the January/February 2011 issue of Harvard Business Review (January/February 2011). 

The creating shared value approach will change the face of business. FSG works with global corporations across all sectors to implement shared value strategies. Companies such as Hewlett-Packard, Eli Lilly, Medtronic, Merck, Microsoft, Nestlé, Pfizer, Shell, TNT, and UBS have already started using the this approach to achieve new levels of social impact while improving corporate profitability.  

Learn with FSG as we develop new case studies, articles, and tool kits that will help companies map out their shared value journey.

NGOs Partnering with Business to Accelerate Shared Value
It used to be that a typical meeting between a business and nongovernmental organisation (NGO) resulted in one of two outcomes: confrontation or a donation. Think Greenpeace versus McDonalds or corporate philanthropic funding to the United Way and Habitat for Humanity.
