Jul. 18 /CSRwire/ - All over the world, the exclusion of large segments of society from the fruits of economic growth is driving political and social disruption. Inclusive growth – economic growth that enables all segments of society to enjoy its fruits and opportunities – unearths a balance between economic and sustainable development, and seeks to address such systemic social gaps and inequalities. Businesses can, and must be, be a part of the solution.

Maala, Israel’s leading non-profit organization advancing corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability in Israel, and Prof. David Grayson, a leading global writer, speaker and opinion leader on Responsible business and sustainability, are collaborating on a publication that will draw lessons for positive business impact on inclusive growth. The publication will focus on an adaptation of a highly regarded model of positive business impact on inclusive growth, which was developed by Morgan Stanley in collaboration with BSR, the U.S. non-profit leader in the field. The adapted model points to four tracks in which businesses can impact inclusive growth:

  1. Workplace

  2. Marketplace (Products and services, Responsible Advertising)

  3. Supply-chain

  4. Business and society(eg. community investment)

The publication will feature case studies of Israeli businesses, highlighting their distinctive contribution to inclusive growth. It will also offer insights relevant to the global discourse on the potential of businesses contributing to inclusive growth. 

A global advisory board comprised of leaders in the field is assisting the work on the publication. The publication will be launched at the Maala international conference, December 4th, 2019, in Tel Aviv, Israel.
