Objective: To create an economic culture where socially responsible behavior is ubiquitous in the pursuit of a productive and harmonious relationship between mankind and nature and inclusive of all parties.
WHY: Corporations and consumers must embrace widespread sustainable behaviors in order to preserve a healthy social, economic, and ecological future. Many companies claim to be proponents of socially responsible behavior. In reality, only a select few take action and implement sustainable initiatives into the fabric of their daily operations. Consumers ultimately drive corporate behavior thru their personal buying decisions. It is critical, for the ranks of those who make purchases based on the sustainability factor of a product or service to continue to grow. An immediate and productive dialogue between corporation and consumer is needed to energize this movement toward socially responsible action.
