Throughout history, business and its leaders have been confronted with continuous challenges. Innovation allows the business community to advance and face these challenges. An environmentally and socially responsible business needs to nurture its market thus creating social and environmental values that are as important for its
long-term survival as generating economic capital. Successful businesses cannot exist in failed societies, therefore addressing global environmental and social issues offers an exciting new frontier for business in society and innovation. We call this "social innovation."
