Shared Value Platform

SVP

The Shared Value Platform (SVP) is the exciting new brainchild of Pro Natura's 30+ year history and IFC’s 60+ years history, implemented at regional scale, in collaboration with the Harvard/World Bank's 2030 World Resources Group and Madeira Global. 

 

The SVP is a new funding and operational platform to create sustainable systemic change through socially innovative and ecologically responsible investments, in partnership with large corporations in emerging economies. The goal is to catalyze resources in territories that will soon be or already are impacted by large-scale projects, leveraging the 'financial muscle' brought to the region to build sustainable, climate-friendly, inclusive projects that aim to alleviate poverty, reduce social inequality and improve quality of life. As its name suggests, the SVP is a methodology by which the bottom-up, participatory element is the core of all actions taken and decisions made. Whereas some institutions transform economies by building companies, the SVP aims to transform the world by building new sustainable models for entire local and regional fully sustainable economies, focused on the “bottom of the pyramid.”

CAN LARGE SCALE PROJECTS ACTUALLY IMPROVE QUALITY OF LIFE WHILE PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT?

Much of the historical and forthcoming economic growth in emerging markets has been driven by large- scale projects, especially in resources and infrastructure sectors. While this development model has increased GDP, inequality has skyrocketed, along with ecological destruction, causing severe social unrest in many cases.

 

The SVP aims at changing the historical resource-led growth paradigm to spur the power of large-scale investments the right way.
