Right now, corporate social impact strategies vary tremendously and the value they create for business and for society is poorly understood. There is no standard typology of social impact strategies or the financing solutions that make sense. And mainstream financial leaders in the corporate and the investment communities have, for the most part, yet to engage. As a result, in many companies, financing for social impact can be hard to find.

Under the leadership and support of JPMorgan Chase & Co., this publication brings together insights from interviews and conversations with WBCSD members from across sustainability, finance and investor relations functions on how they are tackling this challenge. The findings indicate that CFOs provide a critical link between social impact strategy and action.
