2020 has been a year of great social upheaval and the call to build back better echoes throughout all sectors of society – public and private – to match the collective aspiration for sustainable, inclusive growth with fundamental changes to the way we develop policies, target investments, and do business.

Where businesses land on the spectrum of sustainability largely depends on the direct pressures that they face. However whether businesses are acting proactively or reactively to these demands, the private sector is being challenged to address sustainability problems head-on and offer solutions that show real impact. To do so they must work in partnership with communities and governments to understand and address social progress and impact within the context of their business.

View our on demand webinar and then download our white paper co-authored by Ipsos, the Social Progress Imperative, and The Impact Company featuring case studies and highlights from the Social Progress Index illustrating why business should invest in meaningful social change, and how they can measure and understand their impact when they do.

Why is this a must-read? Smart companies have realized that doing business better by investing in the communities they work in can generate increased returns and boost competitiveness. That doing good while doing well is not just possible, but required if a business is to succeed.
