The article focuses on the importance of leadership and learning in changing the role of business in society based on a survey conducted in Europe by the Ashridge Centre for Business and Society and the European Academy of Business in Society (Eabis). One of the reflexive abilities required to integrate social and environmental considerations into decision-making is systemic thinking. The survey concludes that firms were starting to respond to social and environmental challenges.
