The importance of this has been echoed by Ethical Corporation’s Head of Strategy, Krina Amin, commenting that “Brands need to do more than say they are doing the right thing; proving that purpose can create commercial gains and will accelerate progress and growth in companies and drive real benefits to stakeholders.”
