Press Kit: Creating Value for All: Strategies for Doing Business with the Poor

Creating Value for All: Strategies for Doing Business with the Poor is the new and groundbreaking report by the UN  Development Programme (UNDP). Over a billion people do not have access to drinking water, 1.6 billion do not have access to electricity and 5.4 billion have no access to the Internet. Yet the poor have a largely unexploited potential as consumers, producers, innovators and entrepreneurs. Creating Value for All showcases 50 examples of local and international companies successfully integrating the poor into their business models to create wealth, spur growth and spark social change. Moreover, the report offers tools for businesses interested in more inclusive markets.
