How does your company give back? This is an important question to ask. It’s not just because giving back can make you popular on social media–although it can–but because giving back should be part of a long-term sustainability plan. In my mind, being sustainable is a great way to give back, to the environment, to people, and to society. Jay Friedlander talks about how sustainability leads directly to abundance. In fact, he’s created a model for any business to use in order to increase sustainability in a strategic way that increases profit as well.
In a nutshell: It’s about abundance . . . an abundant world where companies that rejuvenate the social and environmental fabric make superior returns for shareholders. We felt it was time to make sustainability strategic and bring together disparate initiatives that companies loosely classify as “sustainability.”
