Capitalism, trade, and technological advances have driven unprecedented growth in the world’s population, knowledge, and economy. These have however been accompanied by a widening income divide, ecological devastation, and a stretched socio-political fabric… the greatest challenges of our generation.
The numerous solutions attempted have been found wanting. Disingenuous regulatory loopholes have mired governance-based approaches. Imperfect incentives limit the efficacy of market-based approaches. Some firms commit to basic Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) or community relations programs, yet these are frequently viewed as cost centres providing non-core, ‘feel good’ activities.
The mega-trend of Social Innovation is only starting to surface in our collective awareness. However, forward-thinking organizations that embrace problem-solving mindsets, disruptive innovations, and new business paradigms, are truly engaging the hearts and minds of their customers, shareholders, employees, partners, and constituents – to achieve superior, long-term financial performance by creating positive social impact.
