A leading authority on corporate purpose, Robert “Bob” Eccles was the founding Chairman of the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) and was one of the founders of the International Integrated Reporting Council. And yes, we decode what these are on the show!

In this episode, we talk to Bob about his views on what needs to be reported by companies, how activism can be translated into action, and why “unsexy” topics like accounting and corporate reporting are critical to creating change. On the show, Bob also plays co-host as he talks to Caitlin about how young people like her are dealing with climate anxiety — and how they talk about things they don’t agree on.
