NAIROBI, (CAJ News) – CHIEF Executive Officer of Safaricom, Bob Collymore, has joined the B Team, a not-for-profit initiative formed by a global group of business leaders to catalyse a better way of doing business, for the wellbeing of people and the planet.
He will work with 14 other global leaders working collectively to redefine the role of business in society.
“We all have a role to play in leveling the playing field for the next generation of entrepreneurs, in rooting out corruption and ensuring companies respect the boundaries set by nature. As business leaders, we can build a sustainable future where no one is left behind. I’m delighted to work alongside this committed group to make it happen,” Collymore said.
He is part of the B Team’s Governance and Transparency Initiative to tackle corruption in business, widely seen as one of the biggest barriers to achieving the Global Goals.
Collymore leads Kenya’s largest company and leading mobile network operator.
Founded in 2012, the B-Team consists of prominent leaders including co-founders Sir Richard Branson and Jochen Zeitz.
