Aligning business, government and society for long-term, inclusive prosperity
Fostering inclusive and sustainable prosperity implies private and public sector changes and leadership that is aimed at long-term benefits. The ability of future generations to enjoy ‘prosperous’ lives depends on our resolve today to radically transform how we manage businesses and govern societies in fairer and more equitable ways.
During this international conference, particular attention will be given to the Compact for Responsive and Responsible Leadership, sponsored by the World Economic Forum International Business Council and launched at the Annual Meeting in 2017. The Compact aims at creating a corporate governance framework with a focus on the long-term sustainability of corporations and the long-term goals of society.
