The concept and also the criterions for value come from the religions of God: The most valuable thing on earth is what reflects perfectly all the light of the One True God:
“Furthermore, consider the signs of the revelation of God in their relation one to another. Can the sun, which is but one of these signs, be regarded as equal in rank to darkness? The one true God beareth Me witness! No man can believe it, unless he be of those whose hearts are straitened, and whose eyes have become deluded. Say: Consider your own selves. Your nails and eyes are both parts of your bodies. Do ye regard them of equal rank and value? If ye say, yea; say, then: ye have indeed charged with imposture, the Lord, my God, the All-Glorious, inasmuch as ye pare the one, and cherish the other as dearly as your own life.”
(Baha’u'llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u'llah, p. 188)

The question of values is very important. Without this knowledge, we cannot make proper decisions to solve individual as well as global problems. The principles and laws we accept as of the greatest values, we categorise them as golden rules. And when we search to their origins, we find that they are written in various Holy Books. Now, we can easily verify this truth on various Interfaith Websites.
Recently, the G20 have reached smoothly 4 important points, that is thanks to our universal knowledge – especially knowledge about universal values. Peace, prosperity, security, development, equality…have become common goals; so we have to discuss only the measures for achievement. I can quote pages from the Holy Books about the four points consented at the G20 Summit.
Common values clear
