Tool: Maturity Diagnostic

The concept of inclusive business maturity seeks to help companies understand the state of existing inclusive business efforts in order to be able to more accurately recommend next steps towards the goal of having a commercially viable inclusive business poised for growth. Inclusive business maturity is independent of sector, company size, or even country of operation. Rather, inclusive business maturity is dictated by

  • how the inclusive business is financed;
  • what the financial expectations of it are;
  • how it is positioned within a company’s strategy;
  • and the amount of impact it is able to have.

The Inclusive Business Maturity Diagnostic has been developed to understand the maturity of an inclusive business. The maturity of an inclusive business will help the business understand its next steps to achieving a sustainable, SDG-relevant inclusive business.
