180 CEOs, including Tim Cook, signed a statement from Business Roundtable to reimagine what a corporation’s purpose is. Instead of (or alongside) maximizing profits for shareholders, there are other important qualities.

Businesses play a vital role in the economy by creating jobs, fostering innovation and providing essential goods and services.
