"PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS/GLOBAL CSR"
This panel examined public private partnerships across the spectrum from those focused on philanthropic objectives to those aiming to create shared value for both the company and the society. They discussed how these types of partnerships differ, how they are measured and key trends for various industries.
Laura Herman, Managing Director - FSG
Judith Moore, Consultant, Environment & Corporate Responsibility, Treasury & former Head of CSR - World Bank
Mauricio Barbeiro, Sustainable Business Manager - Banco Santander Brasil
Bulbul Gupta, Head of Market-Based Approaches - Clinton Global Initiative. She mentioned that "Trends in Public Private Partnership = Corporate Strategic Philanthropy as Market Differentiation = mobilizing core business competencies while meeting beneficiaries' needs, to know what a corporation stands for re core business, as well as social impact.
Important to identify the right social issue to address as a corporation, that is based on community needs (and that takes advantage of core business and staff expertise, provides business unit engagement as well as traditional CSR and volunteering opportunities).
Important to then identify the right partners to commit with long-term -- corporate philanthropy can be a series of first or second dates, but strategic philanthropy can and should be a deeper engagement, especially to see impact at the base of the pyramid populations and least-developed markets.
Core Business + strategic philanthropy = Shared Value is one of the most powerful approaches that has helped take that internal analysis of external societal problems into an ideal tool for designing the next generation of PPPs.
Conference theme = Maximizing Shareholder Value - truly possible if we work to better align core business and CSR to achieve business as well as social value."
Sharon D'Agostino, VP, Corporate Citizenship - Johnson & Johnson
She told us that "Partnerships are critical in delivering our commitment to improve health and well-being around the world. Johnson & Johnson was the first private sector partner to join the United Nations Health4+, a partnership that trains skilled birth attendants in Emergency Obstetric and Newborn Care in Ethiopia and Tanzania, two countries where maternal and infant mortality rates are high."
