Inclusive Business Models. Smart, Sustainable and Inclusive Growth at the Base of the Pyramid
The role of the private sector is vital in the framework of sustainable and viable economic growth of developing and emerging markets. Businesses and industries should have a role to play in turning this vision into reality by supporting sustainable and inclusive business models capable to bring real improvements to the lives of the most vulnerable people. Europe must now take the lead towards enhanced global development policy, stronger partnerships with developing countries, but also with fostering innovation and thus competitiveness.
Marc Van Ameringen participated in the panel together with representatives from the European Commission, the French Government, the German Development Agency (GIZ), CSR Europe, Ashoka and GDF Suez.
