The Africa Shared Value Summit is modelled on the successful Shared Value Leadership Summit held annually in New York.
The 2018 Summit will cover a variety of topics, centering on the implementation, and impact of Shared Value, in industries from agriculture to green energy to the financial sector. Alignment with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, as a focus for business’s journey to profit with purpose, will be explored from a range of perspectives.
Shift Social Development, the team of women behind the summit, aim to create an annual platform where Shared Value practitioners can share their stories and influence businesses and brands in the creation of Shared Value. Thus embodying their mantra, profit with purpose.
Over the course of two days, the Summit will focus on Building Business for the Future and Shaping Africa’s Future.
The Summit will be taking place at The Maslow in Johannesburg, South Africa from 24-25 May 2018.
