Better Business, Better World
January 17, 2017
In its first ever report Better Business, Better World, the Business & Sustainable Development Commission recognizes that while the last few decades have lifted hundreds of millions out of poverty, they have also led to unequal growth, increasing job insecurity, ever more debt and ever greater environmental risks.
This mix has fueled an anti-globalization reaction in many countries, with businesses and financial interests seen as central to the problem, and is undermining the long-term economic growth that the world needs. The Commission has spent the last year exploring a central question, “What will it take for business to be central to building a sustainable market economy — one that can help to deliver the Global Goals?” Better Business, Better World shows how and underscores why switching tracks to a business model that works for a new kind of inclusive growth makes good business sense.
