  • About AVA

    Asia Value Advisors (AVA) is a leading philanthropy advisory firm that seeks to inform, inspire and engage individuals and organisations to create sustainable impacts.

     

    At AVA, we envision a future where sustainability is no longer a nice-to-have aspiration. And instead, a competitive and moral imperative that can be objectively measured and valued across economic, social and environmental dimensions of all organisational and human activities.

     

    We can get closer to this future today in three ways. First, by engaging with all stakeholders, and not just shareholders, in understanding the broader context of our actions and their consequences. Second, by recognising and overcoming our siloed thinking that hinder our collective capacity to create greater impacts. And third, by taking purposeful actions in creating positive societal impacts in our own personal and professional capacities.

     

    Through our work at AVA, we hope to create collective shifts in mindsets and actions among individuals, policymakers and organisations toward a more inclusive and sustainable future.
