In recent years, technological advancements have led to life-changing innovations. However, in the first two decades of the 21st century, we have already witnessed two severe global economic recessions, increasingly polarising politics, rising resource inequality and massive environmental degradation. We live in times where exciting growth opportunities coexist with existential threats to current and future generations. To fully exploit these growth opportunities while managing the challenges, we need to inspire new thinking that embraces steward leadership and creates a WIN-WIN-WIN scenario wherein individuals, organisations and humanity can thrive together.

By inspiring new ideas and providing guidance on actionable steps businesses can take to manifest their stewardship purpose, the Stewardship Asia Roundtable 2022 seeks to encourage organisations to be steward leaders and instil a genuine desire and persistence to create a collective better future.
