It would be wise to seek out and support any company using a business model which encourages social responsibility and sustainability among their businesses goals. Many of these companies exist and are worth seeking out–they are also known as:
People, Planet & Profit
Triple Bottom Line
The B Corporation
This adds two more lines to the traditional bottom line oriented business model that had previously only focused on Profit (the sum of revenue after expenses). The defacto goal for business had previously been to make a profit at all costs, however that philosophy has created a world littered with pollution, and vast differences in personal net worth and quality of life. The quest for profit also didn’t consider the future needs of others with respect to using natural resources. With 3P companies Profit is still a main goal, but it is Profit with a conscience.
People: a new focus on fairness and justice for workers that provides a livable wage, safe working environment and doesn’t exploit any particular community or labour force, while conducting business.
Planet: Incorporating sustainable DeZign and environmental practices, which takes into account responsible management of natural resources and start to finish, and/or cradle to grave product/service consideration.
