Asian cities – and Hong Kong in particular – are facing greater challenges than ever before. The economic downturn, ageing population and housing crisis are just a few of the complex issues challenging all facets of society. What actions do people expect from businesses? How can business adapt and foster more inclusive, sustainable growth?
Creating Shared Value is a powerful approach that prompts business to rethink its long-term competitiveness while improving social and environmental conditions where it operates. How can companies design profitable products, services and value chain models with measurable social or environmental impact?
On March 18 we co-hosted an interactive webinar with Shared Value Project Hong Kong, where GlobeScan shared the latest societal issues, trends and expectations from public that are shaping the business context in 2020, while SVPHK introduced Creating Shared Value as a business strategy, including sample case studies. SVPHK also shared local experience in building a corporate community for social innovation and catalysing tri-sector action around issues such as mental well-being and ageing society in Hong Kong.
