ACHIEVEMENT IN INCLUSIVE BUSINESS

The award for Achievement in Inclusive Business recognises transformational business models that integrate people at the Base of Pyramid (BOP) into the value chain as suppliers, distributors, retailers or customers. The business models highlighted should be commercially viable as well as inclusive, benefiting both the company and some of the more than 4 billion people, including informal workers, with income below $8 per day in purchasing power parity or who lack access to basic goods and services. Special attention will be given to efforts to promote gender equality, such as the development of women entrepreneurs and women-led SMEs.

Projects or transactions must have passed the implementation stage, and must be commercially viable now or potentially within five years of implementation. Only initiatives that have been implemented since 2010 will be eligible.
