In recent years, there is growing discussion on how businesses can move beyond the narrow view of Philanthropy and CSR. The idea today is to have a fundamental relook at business models, drivers of competitive advantage, social problems being solved and value being created by firms.
Keeping the above idea in mind Shared Value India Initiative (SVII) was setup to connect business and community leaders towards defining the practice of shared value. The initiative is committed towards bringing forward the realization, understanding, adoption and implementation of the best practices for creating shared value among the companies, civil society and government organizations in India, thereby accelerating the economic and social progress towards a more equitable and sustainable world.
Driven by this principle SVII is excited to share a brief for the Inclusive Business Platform. Inclusive business platform looks at –
• Celebrating enterprises that are redefining the role of businesses in society
• Focus on knowledge generation and dissemination
• Create conversations on the idea of economic and social objectives that drive the economic growth of the country
The ‘Inclusive Business Platform’ is an effort to celebrate the Enterprises that have adopted the shared value orientation by developing profitable business models around tangible social and environmental needs. The project involves the creation of an authentic list of enterprises involved in addressing social problems as a part of their business models.
Companies covered: Fifty
The ‘Inclusive Business Platform’ presents an ecosystem-based approach where knowledge about the idea of shared value and its application is disseminated via multiple channels
