The Business Case for Development: How Companies Drive Development and How Government and Donors Can Help
Part of the Chevron Forum on Development
Corporations are increasingly seeing the benefit to pursuing investment in developing countries that delivers long-term development impact. Today, we see many successful examples across regions and sectors of how core business strategies have led to significant and sustainable growth, with the greatest benefits realized when business interests are aligned with donor development initiatives.
Please join us to mark the launch of a new IGD report, The Business Case for Development: How Companies Can Drive Sustainable Development and How Governments and Donors Can Leverage Their Impact, as panelists discuss U.S., European, and African approaches to integrating development into core business and how sound business strategies benefit both the bottom line and the bottom of the pyramid.
