The GEC has come together with CAFOD, WWF, Save the Children, IIED, African Centre for a Green Economy, and SEEDto ask ministers at the PAGE ministerial conference to step-up and work together to make green fairer.
Governments, business, international institutions and civil society all need to work together to meet the challenge of making all economies inclusive and sustainable – to make economic development both green and fair.
Mention inequality to a business audience and one of two things happens. They recoil in discomfort, or reinterpret the term – as social sustainability or doing more business with people living in poverty. Same goes for the private sector development professionals in the aid community (e.g. the inclusive business crowd).
