Evidence suggests that though earlier most of the corporates were active in some sort of social responsibility, a few have now incorporated social impact at the core of their strategy. Across industries companies are now consciously using social impact to differentiate their offerings, to invest in sustainable supply chain, and have adopted inclusive practices to involve the bottom of the pyramid in their business processes. However, mobilizing the corporate partners for social impact is challenging and requires creating a paradigm shift in their thought process.
In this session speakers will discuss why corporates should integrate social impact as the strategic driver of value and the challenges in achieving this in practice.
- Can there be an intersection of business and social impact? Is embracing social impact a good corporate strategy?
- Can business fill the gap to achieve SDGs?
- What are the challenges and opportunities in making social impact the core strategy of business?
