We combine bespoke policy research and insights from experts to influence and activate change in the world.

Impact in action


The United Nations asked Economist Impact to open their “SDG moment” conference to analyse progress and identify opportunities for improvement.


The Sustainability Project spotlights and advances solutions. By using our ability to drive the conversation, we engage global stakeholders with the power to deliver real change.


Connecting issues with people

Every year we host more than 150 in-person and virtual events, bringing together global audiences to discuss the issues that matter most. CEOs, thought leaders and senior political figures convene for guided debate on topics such as sustainability, trade, the future of technology and work. High-profile speakers share unparalleled insights during spirited exchanges. At Sustainability Week 2021 Mark Carney, the UN special envoy for climate action and finance, spoke about investment and financing requirements to achieve a net-zero emissions future and Erna Solberg, the prime minister of Norway, spoke about the transformative set of recommendations announced by the High-Level Panel for a Sustainable Ocean Economy. Anthony Scaramucci, former White House communications director, joined us to discuss the future of money. And Katherine Tai, US trade representative, shared the Biden administration's vision for worker-centred trade policy at an event about the future of work.

"Businesses today are making big decisions about what their future will look like. But it’s only when we share experiences, learn what worked for others and advocate for employee experience that we can make the best decisions for our work communities. The Economist Innovation@Work is the place to hear case studies from the leaders getting it right today, gain practical tips and get inspired"
