New national focus to redefine corporate purpose resonates with work in place at Incourage

Mon. Aug 26, 2019

Where just last week more than 200 CEOs of world-leading corporations committed to redefine their corporate purpose, in 2014 Incourage committed to align all assets to pursue our core purpose of co-creating an inclusive, adaptive and sustainable community. The newest way we are doing this is through an active ownership practice that we call Place-Based Shareholder Engagement. Our strategy includes engaging with publicly traded firms that impact our regional and state economy.

Today, Aspen Institute published “Place-based Shareholder Engagement: Where Community and Corporate Purpose Meet” featuring Incourage. Along with our national partners mentioned in this blog, we hope that our efforts will help to establish a productive dialogue and collaboration with the nation’s CEOs committed to a new vision of capitalism that benefits stakeholders as well as shareholders.

As always, if you would like to learn more about our work and the impact we are having here, please contact us directly at [email protected].
