Business is increasingly challenged by the issues of our time – the climate crisis, growing inequality, attracting and retaining talent and pivoting in a time of crisis. 

Not only does business need to mitigate these impacts on their own operations, but it is also clear that it is imperative that business be a part of the solution to larger societal problems. 

The social purpose business model fundamentally alters the business model from business to business and business to consumer to business to society.
