Summit Background:
Within the last year, shared value has entered the global business lexicon. It has been named a "megatrend" by the mainstream media and trend researchers and has continued to provoke debate and discussion at the global scale.

Informed by our client work and ongoing outreach in the field, FSG has advanced the shared value research agenda significantly since the first Summit in June 2011. The 2012 Shared Value Leadership Summit focused on how to implement shared value more effectively, giving leaders a new path forward by better understanding shared value strategies by industry, geography, and through successful partnerships.
