PublicAffairsAsia has released a 52-page report entitled SharingValueAsia: Partnership in Action’ examining 17 partnership and shared value programmes developed in the Asia Pacific region.
The report, produced in conjunction with Hewlett-Packard ahead of the SharingValueAsia summit on October 9, examines a wide range of corporate-led initiatives, with projects from corporations including Chevron, IHG, Coca-Cola, Vale Minerals and Prudential.
Other corporations featured include Japanese food and beverage company Kirin, Shell, Nestle, The Body Shop and Taiwanese grocery firm PX Mart.
The programmes covered include partnership-based philanthropy, disaster recovery, environmental development and the Creation of Shared Value. It also features opening essays from Hewlett-Packard, CARE International and FleishmanHillard.
Writing in the foreword, Elizabeth Hernandez, Vice President of Corporate Affairs at Hewlett-Packard in Asia Pacific, said: “We have pleasure in sharing this report with our stakeholders across the region. We hope this publication, and PublicAffairsAsia’s new platform SharingValue.Asia, will raise awareness of the huge impact that can be achieved when organisations work collaboratively across sectors.”
Craig Hoy, Executive Director of PublicAffairsAsia, which is developing the SharingValueAsia programme, added: “This report will help connect corporations, not-for-profit groups, government and the informed consumer. It explores how corporations can drive change, and deliver bottom line returns, by building a social mission into their operations in Asia Pacific.”
