Creating Shared Value:
the role of business in development

Nestlé, in collaboration with the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), is co-hosting the 4th edition of the Creating Shared Value Forum on Monday 5 November in New Delhi, India.

This will take place at 9:30 AM – 18:00 PM IST / 04:00 AM – 12:30 PM GMT.

The theme of the Forum is Creating Shared Value: The role of business in development. Our goal is to engage panellists and participants in a thoughtful discussion on how governments worldwide can work together with civil society and the private sector to accelerate sustainable development. Nestlé will share its experience with a business model called “Creating Shared Value”, which provides a powerful example for building such collaboration.

These sessions will focus on:

  • Creating Shared Value: beyond Philanthropy and Corporate Social Responsibility
  • The double burden of malnutrition
  • Water, energy, food security
  • Rural Development: a tall order?
  • What next for business and society?

The day will conclude with the announcement of the winner of the CHF 500,000 Nestlé 2012 Creating Shared Value Prize.

We are just as keen to hear the views of everyone watching the live webcast and are hosting a live online discussion, in parallel with the CSV Forum, as a platform for interaction and debate around these topics.

There will be on-demand videos of the event available at the link above.

  1. The critical issue is the chosen point of departure or perspective, if you will. Sharing in terms of doing business has a different meaning compared to what the outcome of the sharing should be, ideally, for the poor being served. Apart from that, the ‘bottom of the pyramid’ clients have  a different needs profile than the middle class, and a different ‘buying power’ all together. Why not have these stakeholders sit in a committee that determines what it takes to do ‘business for the good’? 

  2. I would like to see Contract Growing with a regional and local perspective.  Bioenergy, Biofuels and Biochemical

    production by local indigenous people that can earn an income to afford products that would improve their quality of life.

  3. One thing that such a models does is to create demand.  People are very central in any economy.  I always here markets talked about in term of numbers, its high time we talked about per capita, employment levels, disposable incomes etc
