Council for Inclusive Capitalism With the Vatican Welcomes New Members From Around the World

February 16, 2021

This historical article references the Council by its former brand name. We are today correctly referred to as “the Council for Inclusive Capitalism.”


The Council for Inclusive Capitalism with the Vatican (“Council”) today announced the addition of 17 new members.  The Council is a global nonprofit organization that joins moral and market imperatives to build a more inclusive, sustainable, and trusted economic system that addresses the needs of our people and the planet. These new Council members are leaders of organizations of all sizes who are committing their organizations to take specific actions to build a more equitable, sustainable, and trusted economic system.

“I am thrilled to welcome these new members as they take the necessary actions to ensure a better future for us all,” said Meredith Sumpter, CEO of the Council for Inclusive Capitalism. “Whether you are a small-town grocer, head of a mid-sized technology company, or a CEO of a global corporation, we all have a role to play to build more inclusive economies and societies.”

The Council is rooted in action. Upon joining, Council members commit their organizations to measurable and meaningful acts to create equality of opportunity, equitable outcomes, and fairness across generations and to those whose circumstances prevent them from full participation in the economy.

“All of us who thrive on the success of capitalism need to have a sense of responsibility and empathy to counteract the forces of inequity that the system also creates.  We need to collectively harness our resources, ingenuity and energy to align our institutions to the broader, progressive development goals of humanity, in general, and our host communities, in particular.” said Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Ayala Group. “The ecosystem that underpins our success needs to inclusively and sustainably share in our prosperity; for that is the only way we can build trust and sustain our own success. The Council for Inclusive Capitalism is an excellent coalition to push this agenda forward, and I am committed to support and learn from this visionary group.”

“It’s awe-inspiring to be part of a global initiative that has the power to fix the acute imbalance between people, planet and profit,” said Trevor Jackson, Chairman, Mal Research and Development. “At Mal Research and Development Ltd., we are working with global partners to address that imbalance by accelerating the switch to a clean, recyclable power technology that can help drive the electric transport revolution we need: Land, Sea, and Sky.”

The Council launched in December with the belief that businesses have a responsibility and the capability to create stronger, fairer, and more dynamic economies and societies. Council membership is open to all companies and organizations who are willing to make measurable, public commitments toward more inclusive and sustainable business practices.
