Davos Debrief with JUST Capital CEO Martin Whittaker

As one of the leaders in the ‘stakeholder capitalism’ movement, JUST Capital was a key participant in this year’s World Economic Forum convening in Davos. 

Martin Whittaker, JUST Capital’s CEO, joined Purpose 360 to talk about core themes, conversations, and ideas from Davos. Most centered on the growing call for a new system of capitalism, one which places the needs of all stakeholders—employees, customers, communities, the planet, and more—before shareholders. 

Listen for Martin’s analysis of Davos, including:

  • How companies will approach measuring a stakeholder economy
  • How today’s leaders are defining and building “just” companies
  • Why climate and equity will be defining societal issues over the next few years
