The GRLI’s 2005 founding report, Globally Responsible Leadership – A call for engagement, identified the need for deep systemic change in business and recognized that this change needed to take place at the personal, organizational and systemic levels.

This timely message, reinforced by a number of subsequent publications and projects, took root to the extent that calls for such leadership as the aspirational “new normal” became central to the global discourse on ensuring sustainable human progress.
