On Purpose

About On Purpose

Many professionals are no longer satisfied with only creating shareholder returns and instead believe that socially and environmentally-focused business models can help solve society's toughest problems. In 2010 we started our Associate Programme in London to attract and develop leaders for purpose-driven businesses. We have now expanded to Paris and Berlin and launched a CEO Programme to develop those already running purpose-driven organisations.
