The regenerative and purpose-driven corporate structures are reflected in your organisational by-laws, agreements and policies through your unique principles and values, which then drive a desirable behaviour.
We use self-governance terms, divide responsibilities between the executives, senior management and boards/committees or design smart contracts, blockchain, voting mechanism or profit-sharing rules to be able to reward, engage and impact all stakeholders.
The key responsibilities rest on the shoulders of directors.
