The role of the Business Purpose Commission for Scotland will be to make recommendations for how Scotland can become known at home and globally for nurturing purposeful businesses which make a positive impact on economic prosperity, social wellbeing and environmental sustainability.

We will establish a short-life Business Purpose Commission for Scotland to promote more purposeful businesses and better corporate governance”.

A greener, fairer Scotland, Programme for Government 2021-22, Scottish Government

“Scotland should aim to be a global hub for purposeful businesses that profitably solve the problems of people and planet. Industry should work with the UK and Scottish governments to review current ownership, governance, regulation, taxation and investment frameworks for businesses, and recommend reforms that build on existing initiatives and incentivise and reward productive and purposeful growth, for example in areas like Ethical Finance, AI and data, and clean growth.”
