In October, Emerging Development Solutions supported Neil Gaught and the Ipsos Sustainable Development Research Centre to organize a series of debates in Boston, New York, and Washington DC to discuss the opportunities of “changing business for good”.
These debates have engaged leaders from companies, governments, academia and the media and are advancing an important dialogue about how companies can become a force for more sustainable and inclusive development. The catalyst for the debates was Neil’s recently published book: CORE: How a Single Organizing Idea Can Change Business for Good.
The first discussion was held in London and last is organized in New Zealand, creating a global dialogue with 15+ events. Watch the London video to learn more and hear feedback from leading figures such as Unilever’s VP Sustainability Karen Hamilton.
Two articles reflecting on the debates in Boston, NY, and DC include:
- Heading to Utopia on Purpose
- Lessons from the base: What big business can learn from entrepreneurs at the base of the pyramid
