Integrating social impact into core business activities: social innovation as a tool for delivering sustainable development and maximising value for business, society and the environment 

Our world faces a number of great challenges, from covid-19 and climate change to population growth and urbanisation. A social innovation approach can help leaders to find innovative and commercially viable solutions to these challenges. Many leaders feel they have a responsibility to support their organisation through sustainable business practices and for these, achieving social impact through social innovation is an important strategy. Organisations that align social progress with core business interests see social and environmental issues as opportunities for growth, innovation and differentiation rather than as costs imposed on the business by society to be minimized.

Through practical real-life examples, this webinar will explore:

  • Different motivations to adopt social impact practices
  • Opportunities to align social impact with core business interests
  • How to plan for greater social impact
  • Steps to impact measurements
