We are all are stakeholders who are equally important. But the natural world will survive without us. We humbly realise we are no more important than the creatures who live in our oceans, the workers who realise our business ambitions, and the customers we serve.
Equality in ecosystems creates human happiness and is consequently the highest value in human and business relationships. Everyone has the right to a kinder, more imaginative, and happier future.
The very definition of diversity is intelligence – the very imagination that helps us live in service to the planet, more vulnerable humans, our workers, our communities, families and ultimately ourselves.
Humans are stories on legs. Right now, what matters most is the new future we build for all stakeholders. And the beautiful, useful story we leave behind for our children. Ultimately neither wealth nor technology will build the future. Imaginative stories will.
