In a competitive world, stewardship is a clear edge that differentiates thriving companies, as much as it does for dynamic economies. Stewardship encourages an inclusive approach and a broader long-term view of building businesses based on values and ethos.  In the process, stewardship benefits the stakeholders as well the community. It is an edge that enlightened and responsible business leaders harness and leverage for sustainable success. At the Stewardship Asia Roundtable 2016, business leaders will come together to exchange insights and experiences on acquiring and using the stewardship edge.
