Inclusive Business at the OECD
|Inclusive Business at the OECD aims to support global efforts to tackle inequality, increase prosperity, and ensure that the benefits of growth are widely shared.
More equal societies benefit business and societes through:
1) a larger middle class and growing consumer purchasing power;
2) higher financial returns, better governance, and more engaged and productive employees;
3) appealing to key demographics - social and economic inequality was ranked as the top concern in a recent survey of more than 1,000 millennials in 125 countries, ahead of climate change and education.
To this end, the OECD is creating a network of Businesses for Inclusive Growth.
This network will be complementary to the existing Friends of Inclusive Growth (FOIG) and Champion Mayors for Inclusive Growth networks. Members will share best practices with like-minded peers and have access to other OECD networks and policymakers.
