Responsible Business: Building Back Better

Join us to make lasting change

COVID-19 has seen the world react, respond and realign: the huge collective effort to quite literally transform life as we know it was unimaginable until now – showing us that radical change is possible.

If we are to tackle the growing challenges facing society and the planet, we need bolder leadership from responsible businesses. Inspired by the innovation and action that business has taken at pace and scale since the pandemic, the business community must seize this opportunity to build a better, fairer economy and society and restore the planet.

We are designing an ambitious campaign to radically change the expectations and impact of responsible business. This is our response to the global call to build back better – and can be yours too.

Get involved

Join us to shape and define the change. Over the coming months, we invite business and partners to share their insights and experiences.

We want to hear from you.
