Keynote: Impact at Scale

There is wide agreement that fully engaging private business and capital is critical to achieving the SDGs and the sustainable growth needed to address poverty, inequality and climate change. While many companies and investors have committed to ambitious goals, most have found it difficult to integrate their CSR and sustainability initiatives into core business strategies, attract investors and capital, and achieve outcomes at scale. Harvard Business School professor and celebrated author Dr. George Serafeim introduces the concept of Inclusive Growth, and discusses how companies can rethink their roles as buyers, suppliers of goods and services, and employers by co-creating strategies that drive both commercial and social impact.
