To serve on the Board of the CER is a platform to contribute to raising the consciousness in public and private sector that financial health and profitability in organisations is only a part of a greater, collective responsibility. As captains of industry and society, we have the ethical duty to ensure that the results and returns we seek are sustainable beyond the foreseeable future, and should include taking care of the ecosystems on which our businesses rely, and on which they surely have an impact.
