Accelerating sustainable and inclusive growth
McKinsey believes that for all people to prosper, economies must grow. Today, a new era of growth is possible; one that doesn’t treat growth and positive societal impact as opposing forces.
There was a time when economic growth, sustainability, and inclusion were seen as trade-offs, but leaders today need to achieve all three. This new paradigm of growth will be more sustainable, driving innovation while reducing environmental impact. It will also be more inclusive, creating access to opportunities for people worldwide.
This is not an easy task, but McKinsey’s ambition is to help organizations and their leaders make it a reality.
