World Business Academy

The World Business Academy is a non-profit business think tank and network of business and thought leaders founded in 1986 with the mission to inspire and help business assume responsibility for the whole of society.

Led by its Founding President, Rinaldo Brutoco, the Academy explores the role and responsibility of business in relation to critical moral, environmental, and social dilemmas. The Academy’s work and extensive publications address the challenge of innovative and values-driven leadership, renewable energy and climate change, development of the human potential at work, sustainable business strategies, and global reconstruction.

The Academy has a unique resource in its Academy Fellows who comprise a veritable Who’s Who of world-class thinkers.   These include Warren Bennis (leadership and management), Lester Brown (global environment), Deepak Chopra (healing and wellness), Ervin Laszlo (cultural consciousness), Hazel Henderson (economic futures), Amory Lovins (energy policy), Michael Ray (creativity in business), Lance Secretan (inspirational leadership), and Peter Senge (organizational learning).
