There has been a growing focus on the relationship between business and society in the last decade.

This followed in the wake of the global financial crisis and the weak and unequal recovery from it, and is also concerned with the 21st century’s challenges. An increasing range of businesses and entrepreneurs have identified that they have both an opportunity and a societal obligation to play a leadership role in tackling priorities such as the pace of changes in technologies and business and working practices; the recovery from COVID-19 pandemic; and climate change and a just transition for workers, industries and communities affected by the transition to net zero.
