Making Stakeholder Capitalism a Reality

“This reality leaves us with two critical and wickedly tough questions:

  1. How can groups across socio-economic and political divides get better aligned on the current reality we’re facing?
  2. What is the appropriate approach, including taxation and regulation strategies, to produce the economic, environmental, and social outcomes we need to survive and thrive for generations to come?

Business leaders need to help answer these questions or run the risk of getting uncomfortable answers foisted upon them.”

Why Business Leaders Should Solve Problems Beyond Their Companies

“Rosabeth Moss Kanter, professor at Harvard Business School, believes the world demands a new kind of business leader. She says so-called “advanced leaders” work inside and outside their companies to tackle big issues such as climate change, public health, and social inequality. She gives real-life examples and explains how business leaders can harness their experience, networks, innovative approaches, and the power of their organizations to solve challenging problems. Kanter is the author of the book .”

Larry Fink Isn’t Going to Read Your Sustainability Report

“As my colleagues Michael Porter, George Serafeim, and I point out in a recent article, “Where ESG Fails,” most sustainability reporting is unreliable, inconsistent, and largely covers factors that are immaterial both to the economic performance of the company and to the company’s global impact. […] If Fink is correct in predicting that capital will increasingly be allocated to those companies with the most sustainable business models, then investors will need new sources of data to understand and anticipate the economic significance of sustainability strategies.”

Here Is What Replaces Shareholder Primacy

Prosocial, which Wilson co-authored with a pair of behavioral scientists, explains how humans can introduce positive changes in their social environments, in nearly any domain and scale. This, what Wilson calls a ‘positive change method,’ is eminently useful in a business context. Ethical Systems recently caught up with Wilson to discuss how the prosocial method can reshape the business world, from guiding ethical workplace culture design to structuring economies for the betterment of all.

What Limits Shareholder Activism as a Force for Good: The Free-Rider Problem

“Unlike ethical investment, the roots of shareholder activism are not altruistic. Historically to be called an activist shareholder was no compliment. It probably meant you were a hedge fund focused solely on reaping bigger profits. This was typically done by pressuring boards and management to sell off under-performing assets and disburse the cash to shareholders. To date, little activism has been motivated by altruistic purposes.”
