Net Positive: How corageous companies thrive by giving more than they take

5 October 2022

Net Positive, a new book by former Unilever CEO and Business for Peace Honouree Paul Polman, and sustainable business expert Andrew Winston, is out today.

Drawing on lessons from Paul’s time running Unilever and from other pioneering companies around the world, Net Positive explains how to build a company which profits by fixing the world’s problems, not creating them. It’s a practical guide for business leaders and also for the policy-makers, activists, employees and others seeking to work with them on our shared planetary and societal challenges. It’s a call for courageous leadership from business and bold new partnerships across the private sector, government and civil society. Above all, it’s a systems transformation story rooted in a human transformation story. 

To thrive today and tomorrow, companies must become “net positive”—giving more to the world than they take. Join the movement at:
