How can companies enhance their competitiveness while addressing social and environmental issues?
This is the question that will be explored at the 2015 Shared Value Forum in Melbourne today. Proudly sponsored by NAB, the forum will bring together leaders and practitioners from across Australia who will present case studies and examine key challenges and opportunities including how further measurement can demonstrate the full potential of a Shared Value strategy.
Shared Value is a business strategy focused on companies creating measurable economic benefit by identifying and addressing social problems that intersect with their business.
Banks have a unique role to play in helping to create financial value by addressing unmet social and environmental needs. As an example, NAB is working with our agriculture customers to help them manage risks and harness opportunities arising from better management of natural capital assets, such as water, soil and energy resources and helping to build impact investment readiness in Australia.
