YOUR PUBLIC VALUE wishes you a year 2022 full of energy and enthusiasm to co-shape your new value-driven world.
We all had to adjust to a world of restricted travel, remote working and educating, professional uncertainty, self-isolation and social emptiness. Many of us are mourning their beloved ones or have experienced the sadness of seeing them become defenseless. Today we all share vulnerability and uncertainty. We all know how challenging it is to keep our energy up and remain positive.
How can we help?
We would love to welcome you in our community of active and inspiring members to maintain dialogue on public value creation and continue our co-creative approach.
PUBLIC VALUE IS VALUE PRESERVED AND CREATED THROUGH POSITIVE ACTION – FOR ALL AND EACH OF US, FOR SOCIETY & THE ENVIRONMENT
What does YOUR PUBLIC VALUE?
YOUR PUBLIC VALUE engages in multi-stakeholder and inter-generational dialogue to enable companies to co-create solutions to societal and environmental challenges. Our strength is bringing an interactive environment and a multi-disciplinary perspective to the current debate on responsible business.
Together with 124 European experts in business, sustainability and good governance, over two years we co-created nine Public Value Principles© and the Public Value Assessment Tool© for companies to understand and enhance their contribution to society and the environment, building trust with stakeholders as a basis for long-term economic value.
Why support YOUR PUBLIC VALUE?
The corona crisis has deeply transformed us. It has impacted our ways of working, producing, consuming, and interacting.
During the COVID-19 lockdowns sociologists and experts in sustainability highlighted how poorly health and education workers were paid despite being on the front lines of the pandemic, and reaffirmed the need for inclusive and sustainable growth. As the death toll rose it became glaringly clear that systemic change was needed in global capitalism.
We are approaching 2022 with the acute feeling that our future is unpredictable. And even more so is the future of our children. We all know the world economy urgently needs to change. But it is still unclear how the world economy can bridge common good and profit.
At YOUR PUBLIC VALUE we believe that companies should integrate public value principles into corporate governance and development strategies to get prepared for the next disruptions and their multifaceted, constantly evolving impacts.
And we also believe that each of us, citizens, should clearly support public value for our own survival and call on business to do the same. Companies have the power to make profits while creating positive action for all and each of us, and also for society and the environment. We believe society and the environment should be considered as active stakeholders of any company. We advocate to support public value and call on business to bridge the common good and profit, to positively contribute to society, and to engage with their environment and communities, in order to re-establish trust between business and society.
At YOUR PUBLIC VALUE we rely on co-creation to shape our advocacy. With a multi-disciplinary and inter-generational approach, we make sure that all we say is based on what the vast majority of citizens think.

Co-creation of Public Value Principles©
Here are the nine Public Value Principles© that define the best practices in corporate behaviour. These principles were co-created by 124 European experts in business, sustainability and good governance. The principles easily understood by all, measurable, and leading to positive impact on society and the environment. We see them as a Public Value Compass to shape the common good:
Together we are stronger!
