We are committed to the “triple bottom line” in all our practices: People, Planet, Profit.
We have a social mission, an environmental mission, and a financial mission. Our choices in purchasing, operations, transportation, all areas of the business – even who we do with business with – are with this in mind.
Our services to individuals and teams inherently improves peoples’ lives through helping them be fulfilled, grow in their selves and careers, helping them achieve their goals, and helping them live/work more fully in accordance with their values.
Our services to organizations (companies and non-profits) help them perform better and help them grow. When our clients themselves have a double or triple bottom line, their increased positive impact is our increased positive impact.
Our social mission includes helping build stronger community and economic vitality in distressed inner city neighborhoods and helping heal the racial divide by creating employment for and building assets in the African American community (through business ownership).
Our environmental mission includes reducing the use of materials and (non-renewable) energy resources.
All three “bottom lines,” social, environmental, and financial, are further advanced by choosing as clients more and more businesses that themselves have double and triple bottom lines.
We are proud to be one of the founding, certified B Corporations.
