Radical Old Idea - Responsible Business in a Time of Crisis
The COVID-19 pandemic has seen some inspired corporate responses, such as Unilever donating €100 million of food and sanitizer, and guaranteeing the jobs of all 150,000 workers including contractors. But what if you’re a small business without millions to donate? Or in an unrelated industry without relevant products to give?

In this session Professor Alex Edmans of London Business School will discuss what it means to be a responsible business, for companies of all sizes and in all industries. It will also explain the business case for responsibility in normal times as well as crisis times, and how companies can ensure that responsibility is consistent with long-term shareholder value.

Alex will draw on rigorous academic research, real-world examples, and his new book, “Grow the Pie: How Great Companies Deliver Both Purpose and Profit”.

The session will be chaired by Eva Cairns of Aberdeen Standard Investments,
