As consumers increasingly demand that corporates demonstrate leadership and responsibility in social and environmental issues, corporates are paying heed and responding by becoming increasingly sophisticated in their impact strategies. They are not doing this alone. By leveraging appropriate partnerships, corporates are able to contribute to social issues, identify appropriate projects and develop a coherent theory of change to connect their various impact projects. Intermediaries are increasingly becoming such ideal partners, evolving to address investment needs expressed by corporates who are intent on growing their impact through the social economy.
In this session, hear from a panel representing successful partnerships between corporates and intermediaries, namely DBS China and NPI in China and Hyundai Motor Group and Instellar in Indonesia, that have been able to work together to respond to pressing needs in their respective markets. The insights gleaned from these partnerships will help corporates across Asia understand how to work with intermediaries to deploy mandatory CSR and sustainability funding more effectively.
