Definitions

SIB is not charity. SIB means that companies take responsibility for the impact of their business activities on people and the environment. Through SIB companies try to tackle social and environmental challenges and find new opportunities for products, services or processes. Therefore Sustainable Inclusive Business and corporates that really implanted SIB in their DNA are the same.

Sustainable business is business here to stay for the good (because the business ecosystem will sustain, which only happens because it is good, healthy and not impacting people, planet in a negative way so it can last).
