Governance & Compliance: Luke Fletcher writes on the importance of purposeful business

Luke Fletcher, partner at Bates Wells Braithwaite (BWB), has written a by-lined article for Governance & Compliance on the prominent role that the concept of purposeful business now plays in a range of industries.


Throughout this piece the authors argue that organisations of all kinds now recognise that ‘society demands that they serve a social purpose’, and that this is having a major impact on practical considerations such as the duties of directors and shareholders.

Jointly authored with Tom Fox, former head of policy and strategic partnerships at UnLtd, this piece also cites Purposely as a digital tool which can help organisations to embed purpose more easily in their company articles.

Published by the ICSA and commanding a global readership of compliance professionals, Governance & Compliance provides the latest up-to-date news and analysis on the world of corporate governance.

The article was also syndicated by Mondaq, and can be read in its entirety here and here respectively.
