Net Positive

Learn from the world’s foremost leaders in corporate sustainability and develop the skills, strategies, and tactics to drive purpose-driven change.

Climate change and global inequality pose existential threats to humanity, and the stakes have never been higher for businesses to take meaningful action. But too often, corporate sustainability goals fall to the wayside – victims of a false choice between pursuing profits and “doing good.”

With the right skills, courageous leaders can become powerful agents of change within their organizations, seizing the enormous opportunity to drive business growth by positively impacting people and the planet. Corporate sustainability pioneers Paul Polman and Andrew Winston, co-authors of “Net Positive: How Courageous Companies Thrive by Giving More Than They Take,” impart the strategies and tactics leaders have successfully used to build companies that create value and improve the well-being of all stakeholders.
