Zermatt Summit Foundation -
Among the Servant Leaders who have been invited to the Zermatt Summit, are the new heroes of social economy, such as Shirin Ebadi, Mallika Sarabhai, Jakob von Uexküll, Francisco Van der Hoff, Jimmy Wales, Xavier Fontanet, Hernando de Soto, Paul Jorion to name but a few.
Ten projects will be presented and deal with diverse issues such as:
Good practices in daily company management;
Centre des Jeunes Dirigeants d'entreprise, develops and trains managers in innovative techniques and promotes the GPS (Global Performance System) which helps assess the social responsibility of businesses. Services Industriels de Genève (SIG) has developed an evaluation system and bonus scheme based on economic, social and ecological goals. The Foundation for a New Business Ethics website WeDreamBusiness.org lists businesses and practices at the forefront of sustainable development.
Research of new business models;
GRLI global network research project helps develop new tools in order to promote a new concept of corporate statesmanship. UCIRI, a cooperative under the fair trade label Max Havellaar in Mexico seeks to improve the farmer's management skills.
Collaboration between the public and private sector;
The World Future Council is promoting the creation of Ombudspersons for Future Generations.
Other initiatives such as the Foundation Résonnance that brings free classical music to places where it isn't, Seven Fund, which finances projects of the Catholic Church in Africa, and last but far from least the Aconcagua Summit, in alliance with the Zermatt Summit, initiates a route of Summits -- Humanizing Globalization around the world.
All these servant leaders have one thing in common; they are entrepreneurs who have succeeded against all expectations, driven by their values and courage of their convictions.
Our dearest wish is that the Summit Zermatt inspires each and every one of you to become an agent of change.
