New Business-NGO Partnerships Help the World's Poorest

“We believe that the leading global companies of 2020 will be those that provide goods and services and reach new customers in ways that address the world's major challenges — including poverty, climate change, resource depletion, globalization and demographic shifts.”

This statement comes from companies themselves — among them Adidas, BP and Procter & Gamble — in their “Manifesto for tomorrow's global business”, signed by eight major businesses, members of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) Tomorrow's Leaders group
