Enter The Conscious Business Leader
“They move past deniability and into action. They take a stand and take responsibility for unwanted and unintended outcomes. They choose purpose over only profits.

To be “mission-based” is a viable business strategy.
A common misconception is that in order to be sustainable, a company must take a hit on their profits. This idea is proven wrong each day as successful enterprises soar in the market spaces, momentum built from customers who share their ethos.
This compiled report shows businesses who actively address social and environmental issues, also retain customers and employees better and therefore generate higher returns in the long run.
“Companies have not just a fiduciary responsibility to stockholders but a moral responsibility to all stakeholders, people community and local ecosystem.”

The Doughnut of Social and Planetary Boundaries
by Kate Raworth
“Humanity’s 21st century challenge is to meet the needs of all within the means of the planet.
In other words, to ensure that no one falls short on life’s essentials (from food and housing to healthcare and political voice), while ensuring that collectively we do not overshoot our pressure on Earth’s life-supporting systems, on which we fundamentally depend – such as a stable climate, fertile soils, and a protective ozone layer. The Doughnut Of Social And Planetary Boundaries is a playfully-serious approach to framing that challenge, and it acts as a compass for human progress this century.”
