The problem
More than 750 million people in developing regions live on less than US$1.90 a day (the internationally agreed poverty line), and millions of others live on slightly more. Based on national reports, no less than 150 million people, or about 2 percent of the world’s population, are homeless. An estimated 1.6 billion, or more than 20 percent of the world’s population, lack adequate housing. Meanwhile, income inequality continues to rise in many parts of the world, and millions lack opportunities for safe, productive employment. Corporations have a central role to play in bringing people out of poverty and creating fair, inclusive economies. Corporations can contribute to this effort in many ways, including by creating good jobs (especially in low-income regions), paying a living wage, growing the economy through innovation, and ensuring inclusive and non-discriminatory practices internally and throughout supply chains
