The traditional focus on shareholder value is changing, and fast. It’s no longer just about making money; corporate purpose is also a major game-changer. For most companies, however, that doesn’t go much further than a carefully crafted statement purpose. What should corporate purpose really be about? And what should be the principles guiding it?

We need more than a recovery plan: we need to grab this once in a lifetime chance to emerge stronger from the pandemic, transform our economies, create opportunities and jobs for the Europe where we want to live. With the vision, the plan, and an agreed investment of 750 billion euros, we have everything we need to make it happen. It’s now time to get to work and make Europe greener, more digital and more resilient.

European funds provide administrations with an exceptional opportunity to carry out projects that would not usually fit their budget. As such, the pandemic opens doors to structural changes with a lasting impact for the future. What are the most unique projects out there? Which are the most innovative, with the greatest impact and capacity to transform society? We’re looking for the initiatives that ensure the pandemic's legacy is a prosperous future.

We’re edging further along the path to a Circular Economy, and when we get there, we’ll find major benefits. As well as helping restore our natural systems, the CE also represents a potential global growth of USD 4.5 trillion by 2030. What opportunities to change business practices does this bring? And what circular business models can companies take advantage of to improve productivity while reducing costs?
