Stakeholder Capitalism
The Systemic Change Our Economy Needs


Together we can build a more inclusive and sustainable economy that works for everyone.

A growing movement of people, including business leaders, distinguished academic researchers, policymakers, lawyers and more, recognizes our current system cannot continue its never-ending need for growth and survive into the long term. These movement leaders also recognize that our growing global inequities are exacerbated by the current systemic commitment to shareholder primacy.

A new impact economy is being built, one where businesses prioritize and consider their impact on all the stakeholders they impact — including communities, workers, customers, and the environment.

This is what stakeholder capitalism looks like in practice — and why more researchers, experts, and thought leaders are pushing for this systemic change. This report shares why these leaders believe in the stakeholder model and how the B Corp community demonstrates the impact economy in action.
