We provide innovative, sustainable solutions to social and environmental issues by supporting, promoting or otherwise contributing to organizations and activities that create innovative ideas. Our social innovation and shared value creation position us as a benchmark in responsible business. In addition, we support local entrepreneurship through training or acceleration in order to boost local economies.
Our two overarching programs for this pillar are comprised of one that focuses on empowering and providing the necessary tools for people to develop or accelerate their own entrepreneurship projects; and another which is focused on providing the tools for conceiving or accelerating holistic solutions to social and environmental problems, thus developing mature social innovation businesses.
In 2019, more than 1,500 entrepreneurships by women were supported through training or finance
