STEWARDS CIRCLE

In order to fulfill our vision, we count on an experienced group of business leaders.

Leaders who bring intellectual gravitas and connections to our Cooperative. This group is also investing in Convertible Impact Bonds that help the network grow, impact and innovate.

The Stewards work as an advisory group to supporting the B for Good Leaders strategy for the upcoming years, as well as developing and nurturing the BFGL network within their own respective countries.

On quarterly meetings, together with them, we discuss the main ideas, challenges and ways to increase our impact and fulfill our vision. They are the key nodes of our network and bring a high level of support for a bold collaboration.

Founder

BVDV Attorneys & Tax Attorneys

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 STEWARD, I PROUDLY SUPPORT THE B FOR GOOD LEADERS MOVEMENT WITH MY EXPERTISE AND NETWORK TO BUILD THE REGENERATIVE ECONOMY."

Frank SWINKELS | CEO, Us Investment Group

B FOR GOOD LEADERS NETWORK

Become a leader

We would love for you to join the B for Good Leaders Network.

If you are a Founder, Partner, CEO or Board Member and committed to the new economy and eager to increase the positive impact of your business in society and/or the planet you can join our community.

In order to help us build the global network we ask every Leader to sponsor us a membership fee of €300per year.

By becoming a member of the community you will be able to attend the B For Good Leaders Dialogues Series monthly in which we bring inspiration, useful insights and connections around the key themes with like-minded leaders and unconventional speakers creating an inspiring, safe space to learn and take action.

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.

B FOR GOOD LEADERS DECLARATION

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.

B FOR GOOD LEADERS SUMMIT 2023

MAY 11 & 12, 2023
AMSTERDAM

request an invite to join us

We want to personally invite only committed leaders, to ensure that you will be surrounded by 1000+ like minded global leaders, peers of your same level.

Please fill in your details to and we’ll be in touch.
