Thought Leadership

Brunswick Social Value Review
The Brunswick Social Value Review made its debut in January 2020. It chronicles the growing pressure on companies to create social value alongside financial value. It shows how quickly thorny societal issues can become critical issues for business. Inequality, climate change, diversity, access to healthcare, privacy – today’s business leaders must be clear where they stand on a growing list of societal challenges. The Brunswick Social Value Review profiles the pioneers, asks the difficult questions, and shows what leadership looks like in today’s business world.
