What Can
Businesses Do?

Business-as-usual is not addressing society’s challenges

  • Socially minded entrepreneurs and organizations are contributing to the greater good in whatever ways we can and choose.
  • Some create quality jobs, some foster healthier environments, some build stronger communities, and some tackle societal issues.
  • Some seek to buy from responsible companies, work for organizations with shared-value mentality, do business with companies that show they care.
  • With society’s infinite challenges and goals, it’s imperative for businesses to take on some responsibility and lead endeavors when we can.
