From Tomorrow’s Company – “Why Stewardship Matters”

Tomorrow's Company has published this well-written and convincing Manifesto setting forth the case for Stewardship, which is broader conceptwhich mayhave more policy impact than acronymwords like SRI, CSR or ESG:

Tomorrow's Company isa UK-basedagenda setting ‘think and do’ tank which looks at the role of business and how to achieve enduring business success. The group focuses on strong relationships, and clear purpose and values as the foundation of effective leadership and governance. In their own words:

In our programmes we challenge business leaders around the world to work in dialogue with others to tackle the toughest issues. We promote systemic solutions, working across boundaries between business, investors, government and society.

We believe that business can and must be a 'force for good'. This in turn requires a strengthening of stewardship by shareholders. We argue that the Age of Sustainability has begun, and that in the future success and value creation will come from recognising the ‘triple context’ – the links between the economic, social and environmental sub-systems on which we all depend, and the opportunities this brings.
