Gaelle Lamotte shares a downloadable PDF on aligning purpose and strategy.

Business performance, purpose and impact cannot be enemies. We know that aligning purpose with strategy delivers better performance and positive impact for all stakeholders: people, planet and profit. It is incumbent for organisations to embed sustainability, concepts of circularity, diversity and inclusion within their business models to drive positive social and environmental impact together with shareholder value.

 

Key points include:

  • Identifying the agenda for change
  • Changing the narrative and re-imagining strategy
  • Delivering results for stakeholders
