Asia Value Advisors (AVA) is a leading philanthropy advisory firm that seeks to inform, inspire and engage individuals and organizations to create sustainable impact.
At AVA, we envision a future where sustainability is no longer abstractly aspired to, and instead, objectively measured and valued incorporating economic, social and environmental impacts of all human activities.
We can all get closer to this future today in three ways. First, by engaging with all stakeholders, and not just shareholders, to understand the broader context of our actions and its consequences. Second, by recognizing and overcoming our siloed thinking that hinder our collective capacity to create greater impacts. And third, by taking baby-step actions to translate our passion in doing good into concrete action in our own personal and professional capacities.
We hope that AVA’s work will help create collective shifts in thinking and action towards a more inclusive and sustainable future.
