Abstract: Abstract “Creating shared value” (CSV) appears on contemporary business agendas. But despite empirical evidence concerning its popularity, serious questions about the logic of CSV are raised by scholars. This paper focuses on CSV in the Asian context. Using in-depth interviews with key informants from Japan, Korea, and India, we employ a strategy-as-practice approach and develop propositions related to CSV in Asia. We identify three characteristics of Asian business practices that shape CSV in Asia: a survival sense, a strong ethical stance, and business-in-society dynamics. Finally, we introduce a preliminary framework for Asian CSV along with suggestions for future research and practice.
