This is what inclusive capitalism looks like

Members of the Council for Inclusive Capitalism share their best ideas and business actions for a more inclusive and sustainable capitalism on this platform. Business leaders can explore leading private sector actions and apply learnings to their own operations. The result is the most comprehensive public platform of private sector actions that profitably create value for everyone — employees, communities, shareholders, and the planet. The commitments to action in this collection are…

Bold

Demonstrating an organization’s effort to transform its operations

forward looking

Reflecting ongoing or new effort, not a past effort or achievement

Measurable

Defining clear outcome targets to allow assessment of progress

We map our members’ commitments to action against existing frameworks for change, including the World Economic Forum International Business Council’s pillars for sustainable value creation — People, Planet, Principles of Governance, and Prosperity — and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Members share progress update on their inclusive capitalism commitments

Our members know that sharing progress against these commitments is a crucial part of learning and enabling others to act. This year, the Council surveyed members who made commitments with end dates from 2021 and 2022 to ask how they have made progress in their work. Our inaugural update report explores successes and challenges companies are experiencing with action taken, provides early insights into the inclusive capitalism movement, and highlights company updates.

how to get the most from your search

A variety of filters are available to help you find commitments most relevant to your company or interests. Our most popular categories are shown by default, and you can find more ways to sort by clicking the “Advanced Filters” arrow below the main filter fields.

Filters can be used one at a time or in combination. Your results will become more specific as you add additional filters. The number in parentheses behind any filter category is the number of commitments to action with that topic tagged.

About specific filters:

Use the Search box to browse by any keyword, such as company name or an issue area you care about.

The Sustainable Development Goals filter lists all 17 SDGs from the United Nations to which our members’ commitments to action are mapped. Check one or more boxes to find ideas for a specific goal or goals.

The Priority Areas filter allows you to find commitments to action based on the World Economic Forum International Business Council’s (WEF IBC) four pillars for sustainable value creation. Each pillar has a series of themes within it. Choose a pillar for a broader search and add one or more themes for a narrower focus.

The Industry, Region, HQ (Headquarters) Location, and Size help you search for commitments by the kind of organization that made them. Size of company refers to number of direct employees. HQ Location and Region can help you find companies that operate in places near you. Industry can help you find topics of interest aligned with your organization’s mission.
