Inclusive Capitalism supporter: Tomorrow’s Company
Tomorrow’s Company is an independent non-profit think tank that exists to inspire and enable companies to be a force for good. It believes business can create more value for shareholders and society by adopting an approach that focuses on purpose, values, relationships and the long term. It succeeds in its goal by convening business leaders, investors, policymakers and NGOs to develop practical solutions. Tomorrow’s Company was founded in 1995 following the RSA inquiry into the role of business in a changing world.
Tomorrow’s Company has had impact across a number of areas. Its work on investor stewardship and capital markets stimulated the emergence of the UN Principles of Responsible Investment and the UK’s Stewardship Code. More recently it has championed integrated reporting and a new agenda for business governance and stewardship. It has significantly influenced the direction of corporate governance, including defining the inclusive duties of directors for the UK’s Companies Act 2006 and influencing the King III report in South Africa, the Commonwealth corporate governance guidelines, and more recently with the development of the concept of the board mandate.
