Creating Shared Value:
The Key Role of Corporate Social Investors

As the COVID-19 crisis has proven, there is a strong imperative for companies to build the resilience of their operations to weather unexpected challenges. Through pursuing business opportunities that also tackle major social and environmental issues, companies can create shared value for society and shareholders. In Europe, many companies also see the importance of going beyond traditional CSR practices and exploring how separate vehicles like corporate foundations or corporate impact funds can strategically create social impact with business relevance.

In this webinar, we learned about EVPA’s Corporate Initiative and heard from representatives of corporate social investors Trafigura Foundation and Danone’s impact fund WeActForWater about their strategies to create social impact with business relevance. These global examples will provide lessons that businesses in Asia can replicate in driving their social impact strategies.
