While businesses might recognise a moral incentive to join the action of poverty alleviation, there is a strong business case as to why corporations must take an active role. Poverty hits the financial bottom line, and helping to reduce it can create opportunities to do better business. Businesses that create decent jobs, and access to markets or goods and services that benefit low-income groups help to build healthier, wealthier, and more highly skilled communities. Those communities will in turn provide the customers, suppliers, and employees that companies need for sustainable growth.

Helping to reduce poverty and to increase opportunities can strengthen communities and society which in turn will help the sustainability of business.”
