The Business Roundtable recently made huge waves in the business community - and brought true excitement to the Conscious Capitalism movement. If you haven't heard, on August 19th released its "Statement on the Purpose of a Corporation" stating:
While each of our own individual companies serves its own corporate purpose, we share a fundamental commitment to all our stakeholders.
This statement was signed by 181(!) CEOs including some of the largest companies in the world.
The collective response of the Conscious Capitalism movement has been, "Yes! Our message is being heard and spread." Our work is paying off and changes are coming.
We acknowledge this isn't the end of our road. So far, while statements are a first step, we want to see more action by companies to support ALL stakeholders in their ecosystem. We look forward to helping more and more companies along in this journey.
