Join us for the launch of the Interdependence Coalition, a policy initiative to advocate for stakeholder governance across Europe.

There is a better way to do business.
During the first B Corp Global Climate Summit, we are thrilled to officially launch our Interdependence Coalition.

We’re setting out to transform how companies operate and how they are governed to contribute to an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economic system.

Success of the EU’s proposed Green Deal depends on businesses considering the planet as a stakeholder. Without a vibrant planet, we can not support healthy communities nor can sustain business. It is time for change.

Our objective is to make sure every company registered in the European Union aligns the interests of their shareholders and administrators with those of wider society and the environment by making it a pan-European directive.

Earlier this year, in partnership with The Good Lobby, B Lab Europe responded to the European consultation on Sustainable Stakeholder Governance and presented our position in a letter, signed by over 60 B Corps. There are many proposals underway in the EU that further the sustainability related path that the EU has set for its economy. These include proposals for regulations related to non-financial reporting, to investors’ duties and to due diligence in supply chains. These all need to be aligned for the fullest impact on our economy, society and planet.

The Interdependence Coalition is bringing together a broad and growing coalition of leaders from across all sectors and nations across the European Union to help deliver this new contract between business and society.
