Because is the worlds first sustainability hub where conscious people & brands connect to show & grow care for their common sustainable causes. Check out the following video from our team, to learn more about the platform or read more about us as an organization here.
“Sustainability” essentially refers to our world’s ability to thrive – Environmentally, Socially & Economically – in a durable manner that meets our needs & opportunities of today without sacrificing them for generations of tomorrow. In other words, it refers to our ability to sustain optimal conditions for People, Planet & Prosperity.
Our development towards a fair and healthy future depends on all of us contributing to each of these 3 sustainability dimensions and understanding how they go hand-in-hand. Here, both citizens & companies are key to the solution. Citizens impact companies as employees, consumers and investors while companies are the leading employers of people, consumers of planetary resources and generators of prosperity.
Therefore, we call on all citizens to review companies relevant to them with their power to impact in mind, so we can support and advance brands employing much needed sustainable strategies.
