Better Business: edie launches new report series on purpose-driven corporate strategies

Please contact the edie team if a member of your board would like to take part in future roundtables

The climate crisis is raging. Technologies are evolving. The future of work is upon us and new paradigms of growth are emerging. NOW is the time to reinvent business models, shift corporate cultures, change our understanding of value, and reposition business as a force for positive change.

edie’s Better Business Roundtable series is about making that change happen, from the top. This series of quarterly roundtable discussions will unite CEOs and board-level directors for much-needed dialogue around the future of sustainable business.

Our inaugural discussion of the series focuses on purpose, culture and impact. How can business be a force for good in the world and for ourselves? How can business leaders build a company culture which balances purpose and profit? And how can we have a more positive impact on our workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment?

Brought to you in association with edie’s Sustainability Leaders Forum and with assistance from Centrica Business Solutions, the first part of this new report series examines how businesses can redefine their purpose around the themes of COP26, climate action and the green recovery.


Over the coming months, edie will be publishing additional roundups of these bespoke roundtables.

In December, edie will host its second roundtable, focusing on business models, systems change and sustainable growth. Then, In February 2022, a third roundtable will take place (and subsequent write up report) focused on ambition, action and advocacy.

The final session will take place in early May and will focus on engagement, inspiration and collaboration.
