Social Value Matters (#SVM) is an annual conference organized by Social Value International (SVI).
Building on the success of conferences held in London, Milan, Istanbul, Taipei and Toronto (virtually in 2020), the SVM 2021 conference will be held from Bangkok (virtually) on the 20th and 21st October 2021.
The conference will take place virtually for the global audience, and will bring together leading voices from impact investing, academia, policy making, corporate sustainability, and practice to create a truly global event that celebrates and advances the developments of social value and impact management.
With little more than 8 years to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and no country on target to achieve these by 2030, the future can seem bleak. However the global response to COVID-19 shows that the world can work together to create the rapid responses required to solve the large-scale challenges that people and the planet face. This year’s conference will harness the power of the global SVI communities to focus the imperative and potential to build back better and to ensure that we create a sustainable and more equitable future for all.
This year’s #SVM conference will be exploring how the social value movement is leading our transition to a sustainable world by transforming the way decisions are made. At this years conference we will hear from world leaders and experts on the most vital topics of our time including “linking social inequality to climate change”, “the business case for sustianability”, “ESG and the responsible investor”, “Social Value Policy”, “Innovative solutions to accounting for value” and much more!
Capitals Coalition CEO, Mark Gough will be moderating the Accounting for Value: Creating a New Normal for Accounting session at this year’s Social Value Matters 2021 conference. This session will be showcasing the most innovative examples of how accounting is changing to incorporate social and environmental value. Listen to short presentations and join discussions about how we can encourage more innovation within accountancy practice and transition to a new normal.
