International debat om indholdet i virksomheders ”purpose” fortsætter

    I en kommentar skriver det anerkendte amerikanske advokatfirma Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz om deres syn på indholdet i virksomheders ”purpose”:

    ”Recent events—notably including the pandemic, its disparate impact on various segments of society, and the focus on inequality and injustice arising in the wake of the death of George Floyd—have accelerated the conversation on corporate purpose.

    The result has been substantial, salutary reflection about the role that corporations play in creating and distributing economic prosperity and the nexus between value and values(…) In looking beyond the disruption caused by the pandemic, boards and corporate leaders have an opportunity to rebuild with the clarity and conviction that come from articulating a corporate purpose, anchored in a holistic understanding of the key drivers of their business, the ways in which those drivers shape and are shaped by values, and the interdependencies of multiple stakeholders that are essential to the long-term success of the business.
