What can a business do?
Like most of us who run, transact with or know businesses will say that a they can only make money! Not true any more !
A really interesting Initiative that I came across was the ‘Nestle Creating Shared Value‘ and their perspective towards the role of business in development is simple, clear, driven and the way I understand – Very practical.
In my humble opinion, they seem to believe ‘If they build a better world, even they will benefit from it’ something that everyone should learn from and strive towards.
I believe in this idea and want to learn more, after receiving an invite recently from the Creating Shared Value Forum,2012 (Organized by Nestle SA and FICCI) to be held in New Delhi, India on Nov 5th as a Key Online Opinion Leader, my focus is now to see what is actionable and write about it.
Stay tuned here for two more articles on this thread :

“Life begins at conception and ends at execution’
