Creating Future Us is a not-for-profit focused on igniting the debate, leading the conversation, and pressing for action; to level the playing field, and ensure sustainable, equitable digital transformation that works for all of society

Our Objective

In a digitized world, every company is becoming a technology company, to a varying degree. There is no longer an option to avoid its transformative effects

Responsible, flexible & nimble approaches to Digital Age Corporate Governance will be key to enabling sustainable environmental and social outcomes

Our Vision for a Reimagined Tomorrow

We envision a future where corporates proactively work in partnership with governments, employees, consumers, taxpayers, and beyond, to achieve shared, positive and sustainable outcomes – not simply profit at the expense of society and the environment. These are corporates that understand, embrace and act upon their accountabilities by:



the medium to long term effects of their actions and act responsively to keep our ecosystems balanced and fruitful



their immense power to affect outcomes in a moment of transition and comprehend that considerable imbalances are not sustainable



in a closed loop ecosystem where we take, we must give back, reciprocity is vital; for the future of our planet and healthy societies



good Governance and Social impact as a CORE accountability and profit driver
