Leveraging a Growing Sector


By joining the Buy For-Benefit Coalition, organizations can take a large step toward operationalizing purpose, cleaning up harmful supply chain practices, advancing the 2030 Agenda, and creating benefit for all stakeholders, while providing satisfying long-term profits and viability to shareholders. 


Cross-Sector Collaboration,
Coordination, and Cooperation


Members and Partners collaborate and reinforce each other’s activities and impact:

  • Companies, governments, NGOs, IOs, and other purchasers commit to implementing a for-benefit procurement preference;

  • NGOs and civil society organizations offer validation of approaches and guard the integrity of the Coalition;

  • Governments support the work by creating enabling laws and regulations;

  • Asset owners, banks and financial institutions provide investment and support to for-benefit companies; and

  • Academic institutions and advisory firms contribute to the development and implementation of tools and know-how.
