CPRT Expert Dialogue: Net Positive Advocacy: Co-creating Policies that Enable Better Outcomes for All

April 14 @ 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm EDT

  • Amidst increasingly apparent systemic threats – from climate change to inequality to social instability — business leaders are being confronted with head-spinning dual realities: On the one hand, they are engaged in intensive, sometimes overwhelming efforts to improve their firm’s sustainability and responsiveness to stakeholders. And, on the other, they are consistently challenged that their best efforts do not add up to the scale or speed that is needed. How can this be… and what can be done?

    With their recent book, “Net Positive: How Courageous Companies Thrive by Giving More than They Take,” Andrew Winston and Paul Polman suggest that when leaders take a broader view of their impacts, they will recognize the need for Net Positive Advocacy to co-design systems that enable firms, stakeholders and society to win – de-risking both sustainability and political influence.

    Please join us for an interactive dialogue with Andrew, where we will explore these ideas and more:

    • What is Net Positive Advocacy and how is it part of Corporate Political Responsibility?
    • What does it mean for a company to “take ownership of its impacts?”
    • How can companies partner with peers, activists and governments to co-develop solutions to systemic problems? How does this de-risk sustainability and political influence?
