Conscious Business 101
Still learning the difference between a B Corp and a Benefit Corporation, or trying to untangle the alphabet soup of SRI, ESG, and CSR? You’ve come to the right place!
Here at Conscious Company Media, our mission is to redefine success in business in service of all life. We’re part of a large and growing movement of leaders who are saying a big no to business as usual, to profit at all costs, to sacrificing their personal and communal wellbeing on the altar of unquestioning growth, and to the myopic, short-term thinking so common in the business world today.
Instead, our community is saying a big, heartfelt yes to using the creative power of business to envision and invoke a more socially just, environmentally sustainable, and spiritually fulfilling world.
We’re a diverse and varied movement, including groups you might have heard of like Conscious Capitalism, B Corps, the Pachamama Alliance, and Social Venture Network, and with varied stakeholders including impact investors, social entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs (who change companies from within), forward-thinking CEOs, consultants, coaches, thought leaders, and more.
We publish cutting-edge tips and inspiration for conscious business practitioners of all experience levels. If you’re just getting going, this collection of classic and timeless Conscious Company articles should give you a good primer on the what, why, how, and who of the conscious business world.
Still have questions? Join our community to access a whole deeper wealth of wisdom!
