about challenges

We work as a community to identify and address specific, strategic questions about how to harness and scale the positive impact of business on people or planet.

1. Convene

We leverage our global network of companies, partners and 20,000 experts to bring together the best people to tackle the Challenge question.

2. Co-create

We design an interactive programme of analysis and engagement to co-create the Challenge output and deepen relationships.

3. Communicate

We harness a range of platforms - including our online articles, social media channels and international events to share the Challenge insights and outputs.
