VIRTUAL EVENT

Sustainability Watch: What can we learn from 15 purpose-driven companies?

SEPTEMBER 17, 2020

Welcome

Why a business does what it does – its purpose – has taken on even greater significance since the onset of COVID-19, bringing new challenges while amplifying others – social injustice, income inequality, and climate change, among others. Many companies that had never thought about purpose beyond their bottom line have now been forced to re-examine their role in society.

In this webcast, we examine findings from new research on the motivations, triggers, successes, and challenges that companies face as they embark on a purpose journey. Join us to learn about the key themes that emerged from interviews with 15 purpose-driven companies – a diverse group of industry leaders that average 100 years in business.

Key learnings you will take away:

  • Why are companies invested in a purpose beyond profit?
  • Why do they embark on a purpose journey?
  • What are companies doing to bring their purpose to life?
  • How do companies govern against purpose?
  • What are the links between purpose and business performance?
  • How are companies using purpose for talent management?
