Sjoerd believes corporate lawyers can take the lead in supporting change and innovation for a more sustainable future. Positive social and environmental impact with the use of entrepreneurship is more relevant than ever. Sjoerd is passionate about helping clients to ‘do business as a force for good’.
There is an increase in legislation to ensure social, environmental and ecological sustainability, as an attempt to solve problems. However, by use of already existing legal instruments, combined with for example B Corp certification, a lot can already be achieved.There is no need to wait for new laws and regulations or the introduction of new types of legal entities.

As a Leader you will be invited to the Annual Summit and there, you will have access to the Leaders Lounge and many other special offers that we’re preparing for the next Summit edition.
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.
