Inclusive Growth

Inclusive businesses go beyond traditional corporate social responsibility initiatives to create profoundly different ways of achieving core commercial objectives and generate positive impact at scale.

We have a unique approach to helping companies build on their roles as buyers, suppliers and employers to structure inclusive and sustainable business strategies. These strategies benefit poor and marginalized populations, which spurs innovation, new markets, and increased profitability.

Our approach is based on four inclusive growth principles, outlined in our seminal HBR article:

  • Be Bold (Ambitious goals need ambitious projects)
  • Collaborate (Partnership drives transformation)
  • Unlock Capital (Financial viability is key)
  • Align and Govern (Shared metrics ensure accountability and success)

From inclusive supply chains to delivering basic services to difficult to reach populations, to creating quality jobs, our challenge is to see opportunity in this broader systems context, beyond zero-sum economics and short-term thinking. We enable our clients to achieve their vision by working hand-in-hand to solve strategic challenges and build capabilities for the future. We create clarity of purpose, alignment of leadership teams, and accountability for everyone involved.
