Profit, Innovation, and the Drive to Net Positive

How courageous companies thrive by solving the world's problems

Our economy and society are healing from the pandemic, but extreme challenges remain, such as climate change and inequality. Business has the vast opportunity – along with the tools and skills – to profit from solving the world’s problems, not creating them. Based on his new book Net Positive – co-authored with legendary CEO Paul Polman – this inspiring talk from renowned strategist Andrew Winston will help you navigate the seismic changes sweeping through business. Net Positive explodes 50 years of corporate dogma about the purpose of business and how it thrives. With bold vision and compelling stories, Winston sets out the principles and practices that will deliver the scale of change and transformation the world desperately needs.

His talk will explore surprising data about our world and look at stories of leading companies such as: Microsoft and Google pushing the boundaries on moving to clean energy; Salesforce and Tesco raising the level of expectations on suppliers; the consumer goods industry experimenting with new models for delivering products; Unilever working with peers, NGOs, communities, and governments to improve health and hygiene globally and reduce deforestation; and more.

Green to Gold
How Smart Companies Use Environmental Strategy to Innovate, Create Value, and Build Competitive Advantage.

Andrew will explore the environmental pressures and powerful stakeholders driving companies to go green. Winston demonstrates how leading companies create business value in 4 fundamental ways: lowering costs, reducing risk, increasing revenues, and enhancing brand value (such as employee and customer loyalty).
