Linking the CEO agenda with the Global agenda for the purpose-first economy in 2030
Building a Purpose-First Economy
Today we are facing some of the most urgent and complex economic, social, and environmental challenges in generations. These challenges also create an unprecedented window of opportunity. We can and we must do better. Leaders on Purpose works with business, government and non-profit organizations to build an economic system that leaves no one behind. This is accomplished by overcoming the structural barriers and putting purpose first so that our planet and society can thrive for generations to come. This will set us on a path that serves all sectors and accelerates the global 2030 agenda.

Bringing policymakers, international organizations, business leaders, change-makers and solutionists together to collaborate in fast-tracking a purpose-first economy
“Purpose is the COMMITMENT to create value
by contributing to the benefit of society and the planet”
Supporting purpose-DRIVEN business
Leaders on Purpose works with future-focused executives as they push the boundaries of business-as-usual toward a new business logic, one that puts purpose at the core of organizational strategy. These executives lead organizations that are uniquely positioned to address some of the world’s most pressing challenges. Negotiating transformational change is challenging, but research has shown that organizations that include broader social ambitions to benefit society and planet in their core strategy are not only commercially viable, but they also outperform their counterparts in all key metrics[i]. Expanding this approach will ensure that in times of crisis, businesses will be both compelled and empowered to act for the benefit of society.
Working with Leaders on Purpose
We support the expansion of the purpose-first economy by focusing on four crucial areas: Rigorous research into strategy practices; a community of CEOs sharing learnings; advocacy for policies that support cross-sectoral collaboration; and advisory on systemic innovations that produce purpose-first performance.
