On behalf of the G20 Global Platform on Inclusive Business (GPIB), I would like to invite you to participate in the GPIB Inclusive Business Survey. The survey will take less than ten minutes of your time, and your input will help us to build the conversation with policy-makers around inclusive business. We want to hear what policies have helped you to engage with people living at the base of the pyramid (BOP), as well as what policies you think need to be changed.
The G20 has recognized inclusive businesses as having the potential to be a driving force for inclusion and sustainability. These are companies that extend last-mile water, power, and mobile phone service to customers in rural areas, or that train, finance, and create markets for small farmers. They treat low-income patients or teach low-income students. If this sounds like you, we encourage you to give us your input. Whether your experience is as a multinational corporation, a local business, or a start-up social enterprise, if you are a commercially-viable organization providing goods, services, or livelihoods to the BOP, we want to hear from you.
The GPIB was endorsed by the G20 in 2015 and is jointly implemented by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and the UNDP. Designed as a global partnership, the GPIB connects policymakers and business behind a mission that is both pro-poor and pro-business. GPIB strives to help governments support inclusive companies more effectively and to facilitate the adoption of inclusive business policy.
Survey results will not only be discussed at the G20 Development Working Group, they will also inform GPIB’s future research efforts. You can find the results on the upcoming GPIB website.
