Putting Purpose into Practice Book Launch and Webinars


Published March 2021

We are delighted to announce the publication of Putting Purpose into Practice: The Economics of Mutuality and an accompanying webinar series featuring leading speakers in the purposeful business space.

The book, published by Oxford University Press, explores how the Economics of Mutuality empowers business to thrive by meeting the needs of the world.

Based on fifteen years of in-depth academic research and business practice led by the Economics of Mutuality team, Mars and Oxford University’s Saïd Business School, the Economics of Mutuality goes beyond earnest proposals straight to measurable results.

Putting Purpose into Practice includes chapters written by responsible business experts, as well as in-depth case studies covering a wide range of business contexts.
