Whether you're part of a mainstream business, a B Corp, or a social enterprise, how effective is your impact strategy? How well is it aligned with your business? Is it financially sustainable? Does is it address a root cause, or merely paper over the cracks?

'LOVE YOUR LEGACY: Five secrets of leading businesses that build a better world', reveals key insights into the reasons why exemplary companies like Patagonia, Ctaste & Ctalents, Goodwill Solutions, Brigade, Grassroutes, HISBE, and Tony's Chocolonely achieve far better results with their impact initiatives than others in truly fixing issues such as poverty, inequality, social exclusion, global warming and pollution long-term. 


Drawing on her award-winning research, Dr van de Velde unpicks what sets successful impact strategies apart from the ones that struggle. She takes the reader on a journey across colourful examples from around the globe, and a wealth of insights of prominent experts including Professor Yunus, Founder of the Grameen Bank and Nobel Peace prize Laureate. She provides a practical guide for business leaders to create more profitable and robust impact strategies. For better and longer-lasting results, globally and locally. To help you build a legacy you can be proud of.

"I learned more from this book than an entire sustainability business strategy course at Harvard Business School. 


That course at Harvard was awesome. This book is better. 

Everybody should read this."
