OWNERSHIP FOR A SUSTAINABLE ECONOMY

Steward-ownership is shifting the tide away from value-extraction and short-termism towards, stewardship, independence, and long-term purpose.

Steward-ownership structurally retools who holds control in companies and what motivates decisions. By disrupting the relationship between power/money and the purpose of business, steward-ownership is a powerful agent for economic change.
