We are motivated by three key challenges that we see in the economic system today. We conduct research, lead programs and manage projects that seek to address one or more of these three challenges:
UNDERSTANDING THE CHANGING ROLE OF BUSINESS IN SOCIETY
In recent decades, globalization and digital technologies have dramatically changed the relationship between the public and private sectors, with 75 of the top 100 economies in the world now large firms.
STRENGTHENING CORPORATE GOVERNANCE AND LEADERSHIP
For business to take greater responsibility for its impact on society requires a robust framework for corporate governance that can address and balance the needs and expectations of both shareholders and society.
BUILDING A SUSTAINABLE CAPITAL MARKETS SYSTEM
Central to a new role for business leadership and responsibility in society is the support of the capital markets system. Capital markets need to be structured to serve the long-term interests of both investors and society.
