We take a shared value approach to our investments, reconnecting business success with social progress. Our investments in social programs are not charitable donations, and we are not simply sharing the wealth. We make durable investments in healthcare, training and education programs that help our business and economic development just as much as the human capital we value so highly.
Through these investments we can achieve a collective prosperity among IRII’s shareholders, its workers and the surrounding community, creating value along the entire chain. This philosophy is in alignment with the aspirations of the people we are investing in, who crave the dignity and hope which accompany a good job and economic opportunity, as opposed to simple handouts.
Not all profit is created equal. Profits involving a social purpose represent a higher form of capitalism, one that creates a positive cycle of company and community prosperity. It is our mission at IRII to prove that creating social progress and a thriving business need not be mutually exclusive endeavors.
