Companies have historically managed social and environmental risks as a way of protecting their returns. However, today firms are facing increasing pressure from the demand and supply sides to do more. A new "business with impact" approach focuses on both financial and social return generation as core objectives of operations. In other words, more than risk mitigation, "business with impact" is about maximizing social and commercial opportunities.
In an increasingly globalized and fast-paced world, where new generations are demanding progress but many constraints remain, running a business sustainably is not an easy task. We offer corporations a practical guide on how to become an impactful business by drawing on collaboration, networks and experience of others.
