Rise against climate change

As part of the Mahindra Speaker Series 2022, Dr Anish Shah, MD and CEO, Mahindra Group, will be in conversation with Paul Polman, former CEO, Unilever, about how business should be a force for good.

Paul, who is also the Co-Founder of IMAGINE, works to accelerate action by businesses to tackle climate change and inequality. A leading proponent that business should be a force for good, he has been described by the Financial Times as “a standout CEO of the past decade”.

As CEO of Unilever (2009-2019), Paul demonstrated that a long-term, multi-stakeholder model goes hand-in-hand with excellent financial performance. He was also a member of the UN Secretary General’s High-Level Panel, which developed the Sustainable Development Goals, which he continues to champion.

Paul’s new book, “Net Positive”, is a call to arms to courageous business leaders, setting out how to build net positive companies that profit by fixing the world’s problems, rather than creating them.

He Chairs IMAGINE, a social venture dedicated to systems change, and Saïd Business School. Paul is the Vice-Chair of the UN Global Compact as well as a B Team Leader. He is also Honorary Chair of the International Chamber of Commerce, which he led for two years.
