"Creating a strong business and building a better world are not conflicting goals,
they are both essential ingredients for long-term success" - Bill Ford
There is a positive emerging trend today, putting a spotlight on how business is being done. This includes the responsible sourcing of products. How goods are produced impacts the environment and the people involved in making these products.
Businesses can have a positive impact on people's lives and the world around us. In the book, Beyond Business, Lonnie Gienger, notes; "The heart of building our world is constructing businesses that make families, communities, societies, and nations flourish."
The #makeitbetter movement is working to push forward the goals that businesses of all sizes embrace. It's been said that; "Ethics is the new competitive environment." (Peter Robinson) Some will jump on this bandwagon because it appears to be a good business direction. For others, it's built into their company DNA.
Here we share the mission and desire of companies with integrity, purpose, a passion for amplifying their positive social impact to #makeitbetter.
"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." - Winston Churchill
