Since its launch in August 2019, B4IG mobilized business leaders from 35 companies around a Pledge for action in support of inclusive growth. This was followed by the adoption of a Roadmap for inclusive recovery by B4IG members, in November 2020. Since then, the coalition has explored and developed practical solutions to mobilize leading companies and coordinate with governments to scale up business action on inequality.
Throughout collaborations between B4IG and WBCSD, the potential to combine the efforts of the two networks to advance an inclusive growth agenda emerged. Thanks to these synergies, the new B4IG Equity Action Platform creates one trusted community of leading businesses with a standing commitment to equity. As such, it gives access to a rich network of experts, methodologies, and leading practices that help businesses transform value chains and navigate an increasingly complex market landscape.
