Our Work

The social, economic, and environmental challenges facing our rapidly-changing world are complex – from climate change and educational inequality, to global health disparities, extreme poverty, and more.

Business can help solve these challenges. Companies can contribute by managing the triple bottom line and balancing the need for profits in the short term with the longer term needs of people and the planet. Businesses can also partner with nonprofit and government leaders to co-create solutions and drive positive impact.

Business for Impact operates at the intersection of the private, public, and nonprofit sectors. Our partners are drawn to Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business because of our expertise in creating shared social, environmental, and economic impact. They also value our unique D.C. location, Georgetown’s trusted reputation as a neutral convener, and our purpose of educating leaders in service to business and society.

Learn more about how we create shared social, environmental, and economic impact through our Student Work, Education+ Training, Research, and Corporate + Community Impact.

“Society is demanding that companies, both public and private, serve a social purpose. To prosper over time, every company must not only deliver financial performance, but also how it makes a positive contribution to society.”

Larry Fink, Chairman and CEO BlackRock Investors
