Impact at Scale: Positive Impact Summit 2019
This annual summit brings together executives, governments, and investors to share practical tools and approaches to addressing some of the world’s most pressing needs, sustainably and profitably. Organisations of all types are faced with many of the same, global challenges. From supply chains to workforce development, we can no longer afford to ignore the role we play in a complex social and economic ecosystem. Businesses need bold thinking, partnerships, access to finance, and governance models to drive sustainable growth. Meanwhile, achievement of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals is dependent on private capital, while investors are looking increasingly for opportunities that deliver both social and financial returns.
At our 2018 Summit, we unveiled a roadmap for bringing together these players, featured in our seminal Harvard Business Review article, Inclusive Growth: Profitable Strategies for Tackling Poverty and Inequality. This year, we’re taking those principles and getting practical about implementation, sharing tools, approaches, and case studies that truly move the needle toward sustainable, inclusive growth. We’ll explore the challenges organisations are facing and how to overcome them, moving large-scale projects from strategy to pilot to execution at scale.
