EPIC is a market-led initiative with 30 organizations representing the entire investment value chain and almost $30 trillion in AUM. The goal of EPIC is to work to develop a standardized, material and comparable set of metrics for the measurement of activities that create long-term value and affect a broad range of stakeholders, including customers, employees, suppliers, communities and shareholders.
Helping companies focus on the long term
EPIC participants have identified and developed metrics which will begin to help businesses better articulate the value they create for investors and other stakeholders.
As a not-for-profit organization, the Coalition for Inclusive Capitalism engages leaders across business, government, and civil society in their efforts to make capitalism more dynamic, sustainable, and inclusive.
Businesses must work to restore trust from all members of society.
Since the financial crisis of 2008, there is a growing perception that capitalism as a system has failed to create broad-based prosperity. In the face of surging income inequality and growing uncertainty, the public’s eroding trust in business represents a systemic risk to our economic system.
We believe that firms should account for themselves not just the bottom line.
With properly structured incentives, meaningful stakeholder engagement, supportive governments, and effective business leadership firms can generate broad and sustainable prosperity in a manner that respects our communities and our environment for generations to come. Fundamentally, we believe that companies should play an active role in building a more Inclusive Capitalism, not at the expense of financial performance, but as a long-term driver of value creation.
How we do it
The Conference on Inclusive Capitalism was Friday, November 16th in Washington, D.C. See the full agenda.
