The current economic, social and environmental challenges that we face today are too complex to be tackled by one organisation alone. Programmes that involve multiple stakeholders, including government, NGOs and private partners, are more sustainable and impactful. Such collaborative initiatives can help to connect our business with the activities of other partners on a global scale. We devote the best human resources knowledge, technical expertise, as well as financial support to help such projects reach their objectives and, more importantly, amplify their impact.
Today's problems of society cannot be solved by anybody alone. It cannot be solved by business alone, it cannot be solved by government alone, it cannot be solved by NGOs alone. CSV Global Forum, Washington D.C.
Our partnerships are also crucial to achieving our objective of inspiring, building, and protecting trust. We have identified and selected strategic partnerships aligned with our Creating Shared Value focus areas that have the greatest potential to enhance our reputation while helping address current economic, social and environmental challenges. These partnerships at both global and local levels help us share experiences and best-practice and enhance our Creating Shared Value implementation.
Partnerships must be mutually beneficial and accomplish shared goals. The main challenge is to clearly define roles and responsibilities in the partnership to make it as effective as possible. We believe that creating and maintaining long-term, trusting relationships with partners is the key to creating shared value.
