How can entrepreneurs use business as a force for good?
When the challenges become too great to be tackled by government and the non-profit sector, business emerges as a powerful force to take them on. When businesses create shared value instead of just shareholder value they can solve social and environmental problems in a far more scalable and efficient manner. With sheer talent, resources, reach and influence at their disposal, business both small and big can effectively shift behavior and habits.
Every year, B Lab releases the ‘B Corp Best for the World’ list to honor companies that earned an overall score in the top 10% of all Certified B Corporations on the B Impact Assessment.
To celebrate the winners, CSRwire – also a certified B Corp – will chat live with B Lab in their first-ever Twitter chat along with fellow B Corps W.S. Badger Co. and INDIGNEOUS, which have been honored on the 2014 Best for the World list.
Moderated by Editorial Director Aman Singh, the chat will focus on how these companies are maximizing positive impact, using business as a force for good and the challenges of working in an economy controlled by short term interests, a price-led marketplace and lack of awareness across suppliers and consumers.
When: June 10, 2014 at 10am PT/1pm ET
