A lot of corporations talk about corporate social responsibility (CSR), but few talk about creating shared value (CSV). The hallmarks of CSR practice is an obligation to ‘give back’. to display good corporate citizenship or achieve public relations outcomes but it does not embed societal challenges into the core of business objectives.
Impact compounds when ideas are met with technology. To maximise companies’ societal impact and business potential, the best way to do it is to harness smart living technologies that are so pervasive in our daily lives. From now on, the impact of CSV is no longer limited to the underprivileged, but touches every individual of the community, to live smarter.
Smart living is not just about digitalization. Smart living goes further beyond. From transportation and payment to healthcare and recreation, smart living technologies intercept at all levels of our daily lives. By providing innovative solutions such as immersive reality, sensors, internet of things, and big data analysis, we could transform our way of living, making it more efficient, comfortable, safe, and sustainable.
