Over one in three (39%) elite entrepreneurs consider ‘positive impact’ to be core to how they assess business performance, according to the 2018 Global Entrepreneur Report by BNP Paribas. This compares to a corresponding figure of 10% two years ago, which demonstrates a clear shift in entrepreneurs’ mindsets across all regions.

During the past 12 months, the concept of positive impact, which ensures that their businesses, investments and personal practices make the world a better place, has moved up the agenda for entrepreneurs.

The report also found that:

  • 55% have committed a proportion of their wealth to achieving socially responsible outcomes
  • 80% believe that entrepreneurship is the best way to generate a global or local impact to help safeguard the environment (with 53% in China)
  • In Europe, clean energy is the most popular cause (35%)
  • In the US and the Middle East, job creation ranks top of the impact agenda with 36% and 40% respectively

The report polled over 2,700 multimillionaire entrepreneurs in 22 countries handling a total wealth of US $36bn.
