Think of a profit and loss statement. To continue as a viable concern, the minimum a company must do is to make as much money as it spends. The value creation model – and the concept of system value that underpins it – works on the same principle: what is the minimum a company must do to reach its social and environmental break-even point?
Answering this question requires your business to assess and understand all the ways it affects the world around it. Stakeholders are increasingly asking: what are you doing to create value for all? Not only shareholders, but customers, employees, suppliers, communities, future generations and the planet?
Below is a small sample of how we’ve assisted our clients to answer and communicate these big questions.
“There can be no value in the whole unless there is value in the parts.”
— Bertrand Russell
