Journal of Brand Strategy Excerpt: Retailing with Purpose

COMMUNITY AND CONSUMER STRENGTH ON A LOCAL LEVEL IS CRITICAL NOT ONLY FOR SUSTAINING LOCAL BUSINESS GROWTH, but for fuelling national and global economies.  According to the Project for Public Spaces and trends analysed in Steve Davies’ report, ‘Think Global, Buy Local,’ local communities are now the catalysts for regional and national growth, rather than the result of it. Retail on a local level is the first to benefit from the health and prosperity of local communities

..It is therefore in the best interest of every business to contribute to the social health and wellbeing of the communities it serves. Most local small businesses understand this concept intuitively as they assume the role of both proprietor and local citizen.. http://www.socialvoicebranding.com/jbs-retailing-with-purpose-excerpt/

The only thing Businesses need to give to all is the letter of acceptance articulated through the presence of an open and inviting door.

Carol Sherriff's curator insight, September 8, 2013 12:03 PM

Article advocating business doing more for health and wellbeing in their communities. Unusually it recognises that small businesses often do this best than large ones.

India passes world's first corporate responsibility law

India passes world's first corporate responsibility law | Global Growth Relations | Scoop.it

August 20, 2013 GreenBiz

The law requires large Indian firms to spend a portion of their profits on sustainability initiatives, such as solar panels.

 

India is the first country to pass a corporate responsibility law requiring larger companies to spend 2 percent of each year's profit on those kinds of initiatives.

The law kicks in for companies with a profit of at least $80 million over the past three years.... http://www.greenbiz.com/blog/2013/08/20/india-passes-worlds-first-corporate-responsibility-law

... auch wenn es nur 2% sind und für Unternehmen gilt, die mindestens 80 Mio $ Gewinn in den letzten 3 Jahren gemacht haben gilt, es ist ein Anfang ...

Daniel LaLiberte's curator insight, August 22, 2013 8:15 PM

Wouldn't it be great if there were a competition among nations to be the most sustatinable, with the most corporate responsibility, and the most governmental responsibility.
