Redefining Value


In the second of three mini sessions on the levels of shared value, SVIHK explores how companies can improve their own business processes though social or environmental innovation by redefining productivity in the value chain.


  • Understand how societal problems add economic costs to a company’s value chain and, consequently, how redefining productivity in the value chain can improve social and environmental conditions whilst improving a company’s bottom line.
  • Learn about opportunities for shared value innovation around inclusive business, increasing employment, quality productivity and differentiation.
