Today, people choose companies that do more than just turn a profit. When it comes to where we work and where we shop, most people align with companies that actively engage in improving people’s lives. Business leaders are recognising that their companies’ long-term financial success is intrinsically linked to providing value for all stakeholders.
And, technology can be a tool that helps businesses drive change, if used responsibly. Almost three out of four people believe that the role of technology is on the right track.
- 75% of people believe companies are responsible for giving back to the communities where they do business
- 59% of people are confident that businesses will work with others to improve the state of capitalism
We need a better model that addresses the needs of shareholders — companies and their investors — but also the needs of other stakeholders — customers, employees, partners, communities, future generations, and the planet at large. By focusing on stakeholders and broader communities, we will create a better world for everyone together.
In this better model of capitalism, businesses play a vital role in improving our society and are truly committed to creating a more equal and sustainable future.
