The 2015 Shared Value Leadership Summit brings together decision-makers who want to build a shared value strategy and rethink the economic role of businesses by integrating social and environmental aspects.
 
Through its "Resourcing the World" mission, Veolia is a key partner for both towns and industries, able to propose innovative collaboration based on creating shared value for the various stakeholders (communities, industries, cities, etc.) concerned.
 
To accompany its clients in the daily challenges: environmental risks, adapting to climate change, social and societal challenges, Veolia positions itself as a catalyst for growth and competitiveness for both territories and industries. With its leading and circular economy solutions - waste recycling, production of secondary raw materials, energy production from bio-waste, carbon footprint reduction, "zero liquid discharge" or "zero water consumption" for industrial sites - Veolia is gradually replacing the traditional schema driven by consumer demand with a new economic model that is jointly built and shares more value by associating cities, industries and users.

The shared value initiative

This initiative was launched at the annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative in 2012, and brings together a global community of scientists and leaders who invent and implement solutions together, at the crossroads of economic, societal and environmental challenges. The project was prompted by an article published in 2011 in the Harvard Business review entitled "Creating Shared Value", which was co-written by Michael Porter and Mark Kramer.
