Steward Leadership 25

The 25 Steward Leadership initiatives in the Asia-Pacific.

Steward Leadership 25 (SL25) is an annual listing of initiatives from 25 for-profit organisations that have shown Steward Leadership excellence within the Asia-Pacific region. Steward Leadership excellence demands genuine desire and persistence to create a collective better future for stakeholders, society, future generations and the environment.

Forms of stewardship, such as sustainability and responsible investing, are at the core of these initiatives’ strategies and execution.

The SL25 initiatives were not selected according to an organisation’s measurement, reporting and disclosure strength. The judges evaluated the impact of the initiative and the extent to which its strategy and execution are aligned with stewardship values. The 25 initiatives hold equal merit.

SL25 is jointly curated by Stewardship Asia Centre, the INSEAD Hoffmann Global Institute for Business and Society, WTW and The Straits Times.


The 25 initiatives of 2022

These initiatives, which occurred between 1 March 2019 and 1 March 2022, showcased strategies that went beyond profit-making to tackle the existential challenges our society faces today, such as climate change and income inequality.

Stewardship is creating value by integrating the needs of stakeholders, society, future generations and the environment. ESG, sustainability and responsible investing are forms of stewardship.

Stewardship is brought to life through Steward Leadership, the genuine desire and persistence to create a collective better future. It involves activating the Steward Leadership Compass.

The SL25 initiatives are manifestations of different forms of stewardship, and the organisations' values and purpose serve as their compass in directing strategies and execution.
