FSG believes the private sector has a responsibility to address some of the world’s most pressing challenges. Through their core business, CSR, and their philanthropic activities, corporations can play a critical role in creating a more equitable and sustainable world while strengthening their competitive positioning and profitability.
We serve as a strategic advisor to leaders and teams, offering customized consulting to corporations at every step in their journey. We draw on our experience working with industry-leading multinational clients, nearly two decades of research on innovative and effective practices, and dialogue with practitioners from around the world through the Shared Value Initiative and Talent Rewire.
Who We Help
Leading companies seek shared value opportunities as a differentiation strategy that allows them to grow profit, decrease costs, and lower risk by helping to solve social and environmental problems. Typically, business unit leaders face challenges in understanding what opportunities exist for shared value creation and in educating internal stakeholders to make the business case. FSG offers a range of services to realize business opportunities—from targeted efforts that address specific questions about how a company can create shared value to in-depth multi-year engagements that accompany clients from early-stage vision through implementation.
As the originator of the shared value concept, FSG’s thought leadership translates into unmatched shared value consulting services. We also help companies cocreate and implement collaborative strategies by aligning diverse stakeholders around a common agenda and shared outcomes, identifying partners for precompetitive collaboration, quantifying potential value creation for these actors, and assessing shared value ecosystem investment opportunities.
In a rapidly changing world, CSR and corporate philanthropy leaders must reimagine their company’s role in creating social impact. Companies need a practical set of tools to make choices, execute programs, measure results, and communicate success. FSG partners with companies to develop and strengthen strategies for CSR, corporate philanthropy, and sustainability efforts. We know social impact is more meaningful when it is business-aligned, embraces partnerships, and reflects the interests of a company’s stakeholders. We offer unmatched pattern recognition in identifying breakthrough ideas and avoiding potential obstacles.
