Initiatives of BCGD and its member companies support economic development and widely shared opportunity.
Economic development is based in large part on the core activities of business enterprises of all sizes. Global companies play an important role in driving development and opportunity by providing jobs and access to markets and capital, and through initiatives that augment these development benefits and address needs unmet by the marketplace. These initiatives include policy advocacy and partnerships that address environmental, labor, health, rule of law, human capital development and other capacity building in developing countries.
