The Moral Imperative for Inclusive Capitalism
The work of the Council for Inclusive Capitalism and its members is grounded in the moral and market imperative to pursue profit in ways that lead to a more inclusive and sustainable economy. We were inspired to launch this organization by Pope Francis’ public appeal to business leaders to respond concretely to the issues of our day.
We recognize that religious and ethical leaders provide vital guidance on the moral imperative to act. We also recognize that the work of inclusive capitalism belongs to each of us, regardless of where we come from or what we believe. That’s why the Council for Inclusive Capitalism was founded as non-sectarian organization that is open to members of all — or no — religious backgrounds. We invite everyone to join us, be inspired by the moral imperative, and take action for a more inclusive and sustainable capitalism.
