The B Team is a not-for-profit initiative formed by a global group of business leaders to catalyse a better way of doing business, for the wellbeing of people and the planet
Founded in the belief that the private sector can, and must, redefine both its responsibilities and its own terms of success, we are developing a ‘Plan B’ – for concerted, positive action that will ensure business becomes a driving force for social, environmental and economic benefit.
Plan A – where business has been motivated primarily by profit – is no longer an option.
We are focused on driving action to meet a set of Challenges that underpin Plan B – by starting ‘at home’ in our own companies, taking collective action to scale systemic solutions and using our voice where we can make a difference.
The team includes:
Oliver Bäte, Sir Richard Branson, Marc Benioff, Sharan Burrow, Kathy Calvin, Bob Collymore, David Crane, Arianna Huffington, Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtlandt, Dr. Mo Ibrahim, Yolanda Kakabadse, Guilherme Leal, Andrew Liveris, Strive Masiyiwa, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Arif Naqvi, François-Henri Pinault, Paul Polman, Mary Robinson, Ratan Tata, Zhang Yue, Professor Muhammad Yunus, Jochen Zeitz.
