The Long Run – Partner of LT&C

The Long Run was created as the international programme of the Zeitz Foundation. It was founded by Jochen Zeitz, the innovative former CEO of Puma who introduced its ethical business framework and Environmental Profit & Loss Account (EP&L), now Director of Kering and Chairman of the board’s Sustainable Development Committee, and co-founder and co-chair with Sir Richard Branson of The B Team.

The Long Run’s mission is to create and support ecologically and socially responsible projects and destinations around the world to achieve long-lasting impact and sustainability in privately managed areas.

Long Run Members are institutions that directly manage or significantly influence the management of a natural area of conservation value with defined geographical boundaries. They are committed to achieving sustainability through a holistic balance of Conservation, Community, Culture and Commerce (“the 4Cs”).
