Many members of the Shared Value Africa Initiative are a part of a continent-wide network of businesses, committed to achieving both economic growth and social progress. Members have a track record of Shared Value advocacy and implementation, as well as a commitment to building a better, more inclusive future for all Africans.

We also have members who are starting out on their Shared Value journeys, with the SVAI assisting and guiding. There are 4 levels of membership and the SVAI team work together with interested parties to find the level best suited for the organisation.
