Accelerating Progress towards the MDGs; Delivering Results: Moving towards Scale

Accelerating Progress towards the MDGS and Delivering Results: Moving towards Scale is a report on an inclusive business dialogue held on September 21st 2010 during the UN Summit on the MDGs.

The report argues that there is the potential for accelerating progress towards the MDGs by spreading the practice of “inclusive business.” This is about companies seizing market opportunities that work for the poor and for their own businesses.

Speakers from a number of sectors, including mining, energy, forestry, water and health care, emphasised how inclusive business practices were already in operation, and companies including Unilever, Coca-Cola and Diageo also took part in the discussions.
