The Creating Shared Value (CSV) Global Forum is a day-long event that occurs every two years, bringing together development and business experts from around the world. It is designed to stimulate thinking about the increasingly important role of business in addressing major socioeconomic challenges in an era of limited natural resources and climate change.
The most recent CSV Global Forum was held in Brasilia in March 2018 under the theme of ‘Water as a driver for the Sustainable Development Goals’. In 2019, we organized a two-day convening focused on three themes ‒ Nutrition in the First 1000 Days, Diversity and Inclusion, and Plastic Packaging. While, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we did not have an in-person stakeholder meeting in 2020, we continued our engagement virtually. Going forward, we will continue to discuss important issues with stakeholders virtually and, when possible, in person. Our engagement format will carry on evolving and take into account current circumstances.
