Enhancing Shared Value Through Collective Action

Stakeholder capitalism and the link to collective action for shared value.

Stakeholder capitalism encourages companies to embrace a more optimal socio-economic environment that leads to the long-term success of all critical stakeholders, including investors, customers, suppliers, employees, communities, and governments.

Today, more than ever, the global community is facing increasingly complex and layered sets of social, economic, environmental, and health crises. In the face of these interconnected crises, business, government, and civil society need to look beyond short-term self-interest and towards a collective set of measures that enables sustainable shared value for all. Collective action, when anchored in stakeholder capitalism and shared value, can be considered as a step towards reshaping the socio-economic imperative in a way that benefits all stakeholders.

A selection of case studies shows the impact achieved through collaboration in regional and industry clusters, alongside a suite of lessons learned. Lastly, the paper provides a set of principles for good governance participation.
