Oliver Scutt, member of the Foundation's Board of Trustees, publishes a reflection on post-Covid investment in Philanthropy impact magazine.
Will the coronavirus pandemic cause a transition to more reasoned investment by companies? This is the question raised by Oliver Scutt, member of the Board of Trustees and Senior Associate in the Charity & Social Enterprise department of the law firm Bates Well, and his colleague Philippa Holland in an article published in issue 23 of the Philanthropy Impact magazine.
The coronavirus pandemic has led to numerous calls for greater consideration of social issues in different parts of society, particularly by businesses. Oliver Scutt and Philippa Holland argue in this article that, contrary to popular belief, investing more equitably and with a positive impact would have real results for society and make companies stronger and more successful in times of crisis over the long term.
The current economic downturn represents a good opportunity to address these issues for a more equitable redefinition of tomorrow's world.
