Consider the costs of network memberships, conference and workshop fees, consulting hours and mentor programmes.
With a Social Business Lab® you get all this in one, focused and integrated 12-month programme, tailored to your specific business needs.
Ray Anderson, founder and late chairman, Interface
It is a widespread myth that you need to choose between the environment and profits. That is wrong. Our expenses are lower than ever. Our products are better than ever. Our sustainability mission has led us to a source of innovation. We develop products that we would never have thought of earlier on.
Doing good is linked to our brand equity, to our R&D, to basically everything in the company. So when times get tough, we can never cut away the humanitarian purpose as other companies with CSR programmes may have to do. If we chip away at our 'profit for a purpose' approach, we chip away at our future.
SOCIAL BUSINESS LABS®
For many mainstream companies a key challenge is to integrate corporate responsibility and sustainability into the core of their business strategy and culture.
Cooperation between commercial companies and social entrepreneurs will infuse both parties with new perspectives, new knowledge and access to resources that may lead to better, faster and more innovative results than they would be able to create alone.
