Business must be for good, for people and for planet.

Business must be for good, for people and for planet.

Finally, business for good is becoming the zeitgeist. It’s clear that business has to change and economies have to become regenerative. But who is taking the lead?

The ‘Business for Good | Leaders Summit’ in Rome is the world’s first meeting of the ‘business-for-good’ movement. Founders, owners, board members, C-Suite executives and investors come together to join forces. We’re looking forward to a 2,5 day encounter to share projects, ventures and innovations. To create business opportunities and partnerships advancing the regenerative economy we need.

Let's elevate the global conversation on a new economic system centered around regeneration

As business leaders we can be the agents of change to rebuild our broken economic system. This summit is the place to accelerate the transition towards a regenerative economy that creates more social and environmental value than it extracts. We aim for a joint leadership statement, collective actions, coalitions, new ventures and new politics, through a common understanding between a wide range of executive leaders using business for good.

The 'Business for Good' Movement is made up of certified and aspiring B Corps, Societá Benefit in Italy, Entreprise-a-Mission in France, Benefit Corporations in the USA, Empresas B in South America, etc, B Investors, B City executives, educational and government leaders. Others working for positive impact are welcome to join.

700 confirmations have been received and we will soon close at 750.

This is an invitation-only event. If you would like to be invited, please contact us.

Rome: the eternal city

Rome is universally recognised for its history and beauty. Because Rome has known how to be born, to flourish, to decay and to be reborn throughout its 2775 years. The world needs Rome so that it can host the conversation that is accelerating in the world about the regenerative economy and keep it flowing through its resilience into the future.

This will be the first edition of a journey that will last for years to come and Rome will know how to accompany it.
