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 Network. 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 support the B for Good Leaders strategy for the upcoming years, as well as develop and nurture the B for Good Leaders Network from their own countries.

On quarterly meetings, together with them, we discuss the main ideas, challenges and how 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.

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.
