Business as a Force for Good

Business is increasingly becoming a means to improve the world. From business models like Benefit Corporations and Worker Coops to ethical product sourcing, full cost accounting and profit sharing, entrepreneurs are helping improve the economy and environment. This workshop will highlight important trends in how triple bottom line (people, profit and planet) companies operate, their values, culture of leadership and work on creating responsible public policies. Companies, large and small, recognize that success is not simply about making money. Instead, many business leaders are stepping up to challenge conventional business thinking and call for higher minimum wages, fair trade, a tax on carbon to address climate change, reform of our financial system and greater employee ownership. The culture of work is also changing, as workers want a say in how their place of employment is run. This is all good news. Join us for a lively discussion about the ability of business to create a more responsible form of capitalism. Presented by Richard Eidlin of American Sustainable Business Council.
