Community

More and more businesses are looking beyond profits to include environmental impact and community building in their definition of success. Community leaders see the value of these triple-bottom-line businesses and the long-term positive effects such companies can have on sustainable development, job growth and overall community satisfaction and well-being.

Oftentimes, community leaders take on new development at the expense of the environment or without taking into account effects on lower-income neighborhoods. When community building is a focus central to the makeup of a business codified into its bylaws, as it often is under the benefit corporation structure the side-effects are more equitable and inclusive.

Harnessing the power of all the voices within a community is part of the task of a strong community leader. Astronaut Ron Garan writes about how you can unleash full creativity via mass collaboration in his book, The Orbital Perspective. Garan proposes that bringing together groups of people who have never worked together before, similar to internal hackathons and innovation days, will produce innovative solutions and produce community leaders that otherwise may not have come to the fore.

Taking a long-term focus requires a strong community leader who understands that these sustainable gains are ultimately in the community’s best interest. Within a company, choosing to be community-minded may not always come easily to all of the employees, but there are exercises a company can undergo to encourage this mindset. These types of internal examinations can improve a company’s overall performance, and is one of the reasons business leaders choose to take the B Impact Assessment to become a Certified B Corporation. Read more about the impact of becoming a B Corp from several leaders’ experience with the process in our free report.

Though not physical, the conscientious business community and the B the Change Media community of readers are connected through a like-minded approach to business and its impact. This collection of voices will propel the movement of businesses as a force for good forward.
