A vanguard in the business world is evolving for the better. The market is developing a growing sense of shared responsibility to care for the earth and the people who inhabit it. Organisations are recognising their role as major contributors to the social fabric that binds our communities. Consumers around the world are coming to expect more than financial performance and quality products and services. Businesses face increasing pressure to operate with awareness of their global footprint. They are judged on their current and aspiring social impact goals. And rightly so, they aren't just companies, but institutions with incredible potential to increase the welfare of people around the world. Financial gains can't address social problems, improve peoples lives and support sustainable development without active engagement with social goals.

According to the Global Impact Investor Network, impact investments in 2017 exceeded  USD 114 billion.

At IR2O, we are excited by this trend, and want to empower businesses to reach their potential. As an increasing amount of resources are devoted to social impact, this movement has the potential to tackle the biggest challenges of the 21st century. The statistics below highlight the global need for social change and are a call to action for all.
