The Africa CEO Round-table & Conference on Corporate Sustainability & Responsibility (ARCSR™) provides a platform which brings business leaders, Governments, experts and practitioners together to engage on issues of sustainability, social responsibility & sustainable development in Africa. As a foremost industry flagship event, it continues to attract the crème of Africa’s leading figures and decision makers in order to commence and sustain best practices
on sustainable development in Africa.
The concept of inclusive business has not dominated our business environment fully as of yet, but its profile has significantly risen in the last five years. Multinationals like Cadbury, Coca-Cola, and Unilever have implemented inclusive business models. Whatever the motive for
implementing inclusive business models, there is no denying that by developing inclusive business models these companies will ultimately be benefiting their bottom lines, building strong foundations in emerging markets. Demand is shifting to emerging markets particularly in Africa. With their growing middle class, these new markets represent the single biggest growth opportunity in the portfolio of many companies around the world.
In working towards attaining a world with no poverty, hunger and disease, greater survival prospects for mothers and infants, better educated children, equal opportunities for women, and a healthier environment, the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals, inclusive business has the potential to be a driving force for inclusion and sustainability and to contribute to the effective implementation of the SDGs. To harness this potential, all
stakeholders – including governments, the private sector, and other actors – have a role to play.
In the same vein, the fundamental idea behind the concept of inclusive businesses is considering all stakeholders, especially the poor, in a business approach, process and activities, in order to create value for all. This enhances reputation, increases growth potentials, and at the same time promotes sustainable development.
The 2016 AR-CSR™ will therefore discuss the need for global leadership to drive inclusive growth and businesses; the existing and successful startup and ecosystem models for inclusive businesses; multiplying and scaling impact through investments as well as fostering SME growth through inclusive business.
