Topic

This LondonRIG edition will see Jeroen Blüm from Shell Foundation presenting on Business DNA

Shell Foundation's enterprise based approach

The Shell Foundation mission is to develop, scale-up and promote enterprise-based solutions to challenges arising from the impact of energy and globalisation on poverty and the environment. What makes us different is our application of what we call 'enterprise-based' approaches to developing these solutions. This involves applying market principles and 'Business-DNA ' - business thinking, models and disciplines - to work out how to tackle global development challenges. Other ingredients in our model include working with partners, committing funds and, where appropriate, leveraging the value-creating resources - the knowledge, brand and infrastructure - of the Shell Group. Our vision is to see global development challenges successfully tackled through the joint engagement of business and society and through the widespread application of business models and business thinking.

The speaker

Jeroen Blüm, Deputy Director, Shell Foundation, Netherlands

In November 2008 Jeroen joined the Shell Foundation as Deputy Director to establish the Dutch office, build on existing Dutch relations - both internal and external - and mobilise partnerships between the Foundation and Dutch stakeholders. Jeroen will also oversee the Foundation's Breathing Space programme in partnership with Envirofit.
