Conscious Capitalism? B Corps? CSR? You might be wondering what these have in common, or not. This Medium article by B the Change might help clarify some of this for you. You will learn how Conscious Capitalism and B Corps support each other and how they both go beyond CSR.
Several of you attended our May event in which we hosted a screening of Farmer’s Footprint film. Thank you for being there with us! Farmer’s Footprint mission is to regenerate 5 million acres of farmland by 2025. To do so, they believe “Every successful revolution must be founded on education and shared values. Your participation will serve as a template and catalyst for many more grassroots leaders to follow. Without your participation, our reach as a non-profit would be limited.”
To help their reach be limitless, they created a simple Farmer’s Footprint film screening toolkit and guide to support change in your community. Take a look and get started HERE.
Simon Sinek’s newest book, The Infinite Game, challenges our current model of Capitalism. In his interview with Conscious Company Media, Sinek says ” The form of capitalism that we have now is not the capitalism that Adam Smith envisioned. It’s bastardized. Milton Friedman theorized that the responsibility of business is to maximize profit within the bounds of the law. But what about ethics? Milton Friedman clearly never ran a business, because if all you focus on is money, your business will break. Even Henry Ford said that business that’s made only to make money is a weak kind of business. There’s only one thing on the planet that is obsessed with growth for growth’s sake — and that is cancer.” The Infinite Game is out in October but you, of course, can pre-order your copy today.
