PublicAffairsAsia will next week announce the agenda for the 2015 SharingValueAsia Summit.
The summit, entitled ‘Delivering Impact with Scale,’ will convene 200 senior delegates from government, the private sector and civil society. Confirmed sponsors this year include KKR, HP, FleishmanHillard and World Vision.
Central to this year’s summit will be a robust analysis of the benefits of using shared value models to both cement long term business growth in place and at the same time tackle some of the most intractable social, environmental and economic problems.
Delegates will learn from those who are at the cutting-edge of the creation of shared value models, and breakout workshops will drill down on the critical barriers and opportunities confronting business, government and the not-for-profit sector.
Building on questions emerging from last year’s summit, delegates will examine how to map common strategic frameworks, deliver programmes with qualified metrics and examine the strengths and weaknesses of initiatives founded on approaches ranging from CSR, public-private partnership to the Creation of Shared Value.
The summit will also examine the challenges emerging in the legislative and regulatory arenas, with Dr Bhaskar Chatterjee, DG & CEO of the Indian Institute of Corporate Affairs and author of India’s globally unprecedented CSR legislation delivering a keynote on the role of government in driving change.
