    On tips from @paulPolman – If corporate leaders just did what they are supposed to do – i.e respect and uphold human rights, be transparent, follow the rule of law, be accountable, pay their fair share locally, stop supply chain from destroying the planet (remember palm oil), ensure labour rights, protect the planet etc. then the social sector could have invested their precious time and energy on more pressing issues.
    Why keep us occupied trying to make them feel uncomfortable, when many in the corporate world live their lives in comfort putting profits before people and planet?
