leading global CEOs in the CECP coalition

"For too long, companies have sacrificed long-term value creation to generate short-term results, which erodes the sustainability strategic investors seek. It’s through the groundbreaking efforts of the Strategic Investor Initiative that companies and investors can change how businesses plan and act. CECP, with the 200 global CEOs in their coalition, is the right organization to lead this transformation."

-Bill McNabb, SII Advisory Board Co-Chair

To Spark the Movement of Trillions

 

Read the Investor Letter, signed by Bill McNabb, Chairman, Vanguard and nine other investors.

 

CECP was founded by Paul Newman and John Whitehead who believed corporations and their leaders can and should be a force for good in society. CECP’s Strategic Investor Initiative (SII) is a logical extension of this vision —creating a forum where CEOs can present long-term plans to long-term investors, and demonstrate the greater sustained earnings power proven to come from longer-term thinking. The Strategic Investor Initiative is developing a new platform for leading companies to develop, convey and deliver their long-term plans to long-term investors. SII will spark the movement of trillions of dollars of capital to companies demonstrating performance excellence over the long-term and will help build trust in capitalism as an engine of global prosperity.

A Collaborative Exchange That Will

 

  • Change the conversation between CEOs and their boards, directors, and investors to one of sustained long-term corporate performance.
  • Provide tools and resources for CEOs and investors to pursue an alternative to short-termism and change market behaviors that inhibit corporations and investors from delivering sustained long-term value for all stakeholders.
  • Facilitate commitments by a significant number of leading global companies and investors by 2020 to research, pilot, and adopt mechanisms to shift strategies and capital from short-term to long-term.
