ABOUT THE EVENT

Society’s expectations of business have changed more in the past two years than in the previous 20, due to a confluence of factors including the pandemic, an increase in natural disasters, attacks on democracy, and more.

We have moved past a tipping point. Both practically and morally, corporate leaders can no longer sit on the sidelines of major societal shifts or treat human and planetary issues as “someone else’s problem.” Business leaders must play an active role in addressing our biggest shared challenges. The economy won’t thrive unless people and the planet are thriving.

In this HBR webinar, former Unilever CEO Paul Polman and sustainability expert Andrew Winston will describe their idea of a “net positive” company—one that grows by helping the world flourish. They will share:

  • Their detailed vision of a net positive company
  • The four critical paths for businesses to prosper today and win in the future: serve multiple stakeholders, take ownership of all company impacts, embrace deep partnershipseven with criticsand rethink advocacy
  • Real-world examples of companies making progress to become net positive
  • Why addressing these challenges presents the greatest economic opportunity of our time

No company has yet reached the ambitious goal of becoming net positive. But a growing number have begun the journey.

To learn how to unlock greater value for your company while helping to solve larger problems for the benefit of all, join Paul Polman, Andrew Winston, and HBR on January 26.
