We believe that entrepreneurs are the key change-makers who should unite their forces, their creativity, their people and their industries in order to build a sustainable world.
It is therefore our mission to build a strong global and interdependent network of entrepreneurial leaders who together can build this new world, the regenerative economy.
The Business for Good Leaders Summit is the world’s first meeting of the ‘business-for-good’ movement. Founders, owners, board members, C-Suite executives and investors came together to join forces. A multi day encounter to share projects, ventures and innovations. To create business opportunities and partnerships advancing the regenerative economy we need.
We have as our purpose the creation of a global Network of Leaders for Good. Over the period of 3-5 years we want to build a network of 30,000+ Leaders. Not only do we want to build this network, but the key lies in the actions, cooperations, business that this network creates.
Training, gatherings, Summits, webinars, trade missions, dinners and dealmakings will be, among others, essential in building an active network of which participant Leaders gain in their building a regenerative economy.
The Founders of B for Good Leaders realize that this magnificent job cannot be done alone and have decided to build a strong group of Stewards, to guide this important process forward.

Our present economic system is flawed. It is guided by a short-term vision that only takes the interests of a limited number of stakeholders into account and is deaf to the call of future generations.
The annual B for Good Leaders Summit exists to accelerate the transition towards a regenerative economy creating the conditions for a shared, durable prosperity. This will create social, environmental, and economic net positive value through a new model of regenerative leadership.
As inhabitants of planet Earth, we take up this intergenerational call which demands to reframe the very meaning of leadership.
To enable this evolution, as B For Good Leaders, we commit to:
1. embrace radical interdependence, the fundamental principle governing life on Earth, as the golden rule for decision-making, leading to a regenerative impact;
2. consider at least the next generation of humans in every business decision;
3. measure what matters to integrate systemic value creation into our definition of profit;
4. challenge extractive economic models and take a stand for the common good;
5. mobilize finance as a catalyst to transform the business perspective from short-termism to long-term shared value creation.
We commit to guiding our companies and organizations to embrace a purpose-driven model that creates value for all.
Through this joint leadership statement, we lay the foundation for collective actions and alliances, clearing the path for a new regenerative economy.
