We need to work together

There is no doubt in our minds that capitalism needs to make a broader and wider contribution to making the world a better place to live for current and future generations. There seems to be no reason why this progressive form of capitalism should have an adverse effect upon profitability. In fact, we would argue the opposite: that a more caring and respectful capitalism will create more sustainable and profitable companies.  There is no simple panacea other than a collective determination to make positive change happen and we would welcome the opportunity to work with other like-minded people and organisations to effect this change.
