In 2015, more and more companies will move beyond "what" shared value is and "why" they should consider it. Now you’re moving on to the critical question of "how" to implement the approach. With this comes the nitty-gritty: How can we measure success? How can business address big issues like climate change and global health? How do companies create a shared value brand?
In the spirit of the New Year, we invite you—practitioners, researchers, consultants, partners, and allies—to contribute your experience and expertise to the growing body of evidence on how shared value works.
