The greatest wealth- and value-creation opportunity of the millennium (to date), social and environmental value will drive global growth and sustainable, inclusive prosperity for decades.
Here are six impact storylines that we’re tracking:
- Women lead. The remarkable progress of women over the last century sets up a truly huge opportunity in this century to drive progress for all.
- Impact is the global growth story. Across just four Sustainable Development Goal-aligned sectors, a group of business leaders have identified new market opportunities worth $12 trillion a year in savings and revenues.
- Exclusion is a bug. Impact is fixing it. Spreading VC funding beyond the usual hotspots and in particular to entrepreneurs who are women or people of color can reverse the 40-year decline in the rate of new business starts and usher in a true golden age of entrepreneurship.
- Sustainability tipping points are nigh. Investors are voting with their dollars and their shareholder resolutions that the low-carbon energy transformation is well underway.
- Impact is the next big tech story. Technology is opening up entirely new avenues for social and environmental impact, and impact is tech’s next challenge.
- The people want impact. Populism isn’t just about reaction and retrenchment.
