Redefining Business Success: it's not just money!

As part of our Earth Charter in Business project (DfID funded), we instigated this Consultation at St George's House, Windsor Castle.
On this occasion a group of people from business (global and local) met with academics, NGOs and people from media, economics, the arts, education, faith groups and government ministries to discuss how we can redefine success in business - ie, move away from profit as the sole measure of success.  

Business could be the engine which moves us towards a sustainable world instead of away from it... but it will need education and encouragement, legislation from governments,  regulation and enforcement. Some very useful ideas and connections came out of the 24 hours, so, many thanks to St George's House for this valuable opportunity.

St George's was set up in 1966 by the Duke of Edinburgh and the then Dean, Robin Woods, as a place where people can come together to explore contemporary issues... an excellent idea!
