GLOBAL CSV FORUM: Discussing the role of business in development

Join the Creating Shared Value discussion

November 5, the 2012 Global CSV Forum in New Delhi, India, will bring together opinion leaders from South Asia and beyond to discuss fundamental issues such as the role of business in society, nutrition, water and rural development.

2012 Creating Shared Value Forum: The role of business in development

Against the backdrop of a projected rapid increase in population growth, food insecurity and competition for water resources, the meeting will bring together business, civil society and government leaders from South Asia and internationally in high-level, moderated discussion panels.

Our goal is to engage panelists and participants in a thoughtful discussion on how governments worldwide can work together with civil society and the private sector to accelerate sustainable development. Nestlé will share its experience with a business model called "Creating Shared Value", which provides a powerful example for building such collaboration.

Key topics

Issues that the panelists will discuss include:

- Creating Shared Value: Building on Philanthropy and Corporate Social Responsibility
- The double burden of malnutrition
- Water, energy, food security
- Rural Development
- What next for business and society?

The day will conclude with the announcement of the winner of the CHF 500,000 Nestlé 2012 Creating Shared Value Prize.
