CANTERBURY, U.K., Oct. 26 /CSRwire/ - Shell Foundation has released a report, Enterprise Solutions to Scale, charting its ten-year journey to implement a new enterprise-based model for tackling global development challenges.

The approach, which focuses upon establishing pioneers with new ways of working that target scale of impact and financial viability from the outset, has evolved continuously since the Foundation's creation in 2000.

Enterprise Solutions to Scale documents ten years of highs and lows in applying business thinking, models and disciplines to a host of development challenges. To illustrate the impact of working in this way Shell Foundation recounts the co-creation of four strategic partners, tackling markedly different development issues (sustainable transport, growing small enterprises in Africa, reducing indoor air pollution and promoting ethical trade), that have each successfully achieved scale.

Drawing from common features underpinning these partnerships, and also from what didn't work along the way, the report offers a new model to deliver cost-effective, sustainable solutions whose impact can grow to a global level over time.
