I’m not sure if it is because I am growing up, or if the world around me is changing (or maybe a bit of both), but the urge to ‘do good’ in this world, that is lingering inside of me, is growing stronger and stronger.
I know I’m not the only one.
Social & Environmental Responsibility
For example, more and more people prefer to engage with organisations that are ‘socially and environmentally responsible’. For many of them, it’s now an ethos that governs where they work, shop and invest. Many say they will not hesitate to lessen or end a customer or employer relationship when they disagree with an organisation’s business practices or values. How about that?
Organisations that ‘Give Back’
As a result, we have an increasing amount of organisations that make it their business to make a difference, to give back. This can come in so many shapes and forms, for example:
- Social enterprises that are applying commercial strategies to maximize social and environmental impact.
- Organisations that now prioritise sustainability commitments and goals
- And of course, we have so many not-for-profit organisations that work hard to make a positive impact on people’s lives.
Organisations are on a quest to always operate with people and planet at the forefront of their minds, ensuring it is at the core of every decision they make.
Social & Environmental Impact
It is of course easier said than done, I hear you think, but what matters most is commitment, action, follow-through and transparency. If done well, the impact is tremendous. Not only will you make a positive difference in this world, you will experience long-term success with your people as well.
It’s a win-win for everyone!
At Change & Ways, we are passionate about helping others and giving back.
