Notes That is why, in 2017, the Coalition for Inclusive Capitalism launched the Embankment Project for Inclusive Capitalism (EPIC) to tackle this challenge. The Coalition, EY and 31 companies, asset managers and asset owners, with approximately USD 30 trillion of assets under management, came together in pursuit of a single goal: to identify and create new metrics to measure and demonstrate long-term value to financial markets. Over the past 18 months, this remarkable effort has convened a series of workshops that bring all of these key players across the investment chain into the same room. Together, we are pursuing a consensus on how businesses really create value – and how to measure that value in a way that is useful to businesses and investors alike. This report is the initial result of that process. While it will take a lot more work to overcome the challenges we have outlined, the framework that we have created and the metrics we have identified through EPIC represent an important step forward. With a verifiable way to measure long-term value, business leaders can more effectively make the case for strategies that will help their companies succeed over time. And that will not only help individual businesses; it will help their investors, their stakeholders, the global economy, and our society at large. We would like to personally thank everyone who made EPIC possible. Together, over the last 18 months, we have made significant progress driving this work forward and creating more inclusive capitalism. We are grateful for the commitment and contributions of the participating organizations and their teams. Their continued leadership and support will be vital as we work to open-source and further strengthen the project outputs, and we look forward to their ongoing commitment. The EPIC advisory council also played a vital role in the development of the project outputs, and we cannot thank them enough for their expert input and guidance. In addition, we also would like to express our gratitude to the staff of EY, the Coalition for Inclusive Capitalism, academics and the many investment and corporate professionals that have contributed their time, intellect, best practices, and ideas to further inclusive and sustainable growth. This unique project has engaged many parties across the investment chain; the diversity of thought has proven to be invaluable. What makes us most proud is our shared vision for EPIC and, demonstrated through our respective actions, our collective commitment to sustainable, inclusive long-term value creation.
