Build Inclusive Businesses
In today’s competitive landscape, companies must actively integrate sustainability into their businesses—a strategy for growth as well as a demand from shareholders, employees and customers. By working with Impact Enterprises through AIMS, companies can leverage the social and environmental impact generated by enterprises to boost their own sustainability.
What is AIMS?
AIMS is an innovative program that introduces selected companies as Corporate Partners to Impact Enterprises through curated engagements that will open doors to new markets, deepen employee engagement and position companies for sustained, value-added growth.
AIMS bridges the Impact Enterprises’ key growth gaps and drives impact by tapping on Corporate Partners’ expertise, know-how, and networks to solve their most pressing problems. At the same time, corporate employees are challenged to apply their skills and business/sector expertise in a different context, drive learning and innovative thinking, while aligning with the Corporate Partner’s CSR agenda.
IIX works with Corporate Partners to identify social issues that align to their strategic priorities, and to match employee skill sets to the needs of selected Impact Enterprises. Corporate Partners and Impact Enterprises receive a pre-training program, leading up to a one-day curated workshop that facilitates solution-oriented engagement. Post-workshop measurement, reporting and marketing materials are provided to the Corporate Partner, with the opportunity to integrate sustainable development products into the Partners’ supply chain.
The program is designed with a 3-step approach:
Join the Future 500 Network – a community of global leaders building a more inclusive world.
Become a mentor to some of the most innovative trailblazers in Asia who are creating solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges.
