Our kiwi compassionate response to the  mosque attacks dramatically demonstrated to the world that “doing good” is integral to  who we are in New Zealand.

Many of us  want our business life  to reflect our values and want the value of our work to extend beyond more than simply earning us a salary, “Doing good” means incorporating  values into work that we hold dear, such as compassion, addressing climate change, inequality, biodiversity, inclusion, sustainability, and so on.

There are many business models today with different approaches to making money and embracing ethical values.  But planetary limits are being reached and in our future sustainable world, all businesses will have to work within our planetary limits and  at the same time provide a high standard of living for employees and all of society.

This panel will explore  and debate what business models today are poised to be most successful in the near future where sustainability and compassion are increasingly important.  

Our panelists represent a range of operating businesses today that value  “doing good”.
