A driving force for social, environmental and economic benefit
INSEAD discusses what everyone from start-ups to global businesses can do to re-imagine the role of business in the global community – increasingly there is an expectation from consumers and the public. What does this mean? Panellists will comment on why businesses can and should prioritise social impact.
