Sustainability and inclusive growth

As the apex organisation for the Mauritian business community, Business Mauritius is focused on three strategic objectives: Engage business in National Economic Development, Champion the development of a strong Social Capital through business, Promote Sustainability and Inclusive Growth for business. Two of the major global challenges facing the modern society are environmental degradation and growing inequality in almost all economic development models. These challenges are no more seen as the responsibility of only Governments and civil society; business can and must play an important role to mitigate those issues.

The Sustainability and Inclusive Growth commission is coming up with a Sustainability Pact, to inspire and engage businesses on 5 Key Commitments. Meet the panelists to discuss their own inspiring best practices and how Business Mauritius supports businesses with their sustainability initiatives.
