New Coalition Looks to Align Business Goals With Impact Investing

By Hazel Bradford

A coalition of global leaders and businesses said Thursday they are launching a new initiative aimed at aligning business interests that can also deliver social impact.

The 34 leading international companies joining the Business for Inclusive Growth initiative will work with the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, whose chairman — French President Emmanuel Macron — is expected to promote the initiative at the upcoming G-7 meeting in Biarritz, France.

The companies have committed to act more assertively to address social inequalities in society and their workplaces.
