We at B:CIVIC believe that there is a wide spectrum of ways that businesses can be involved in growth through social responsibility, and B Labs and the new Best for Colorado Campaign is yet another important element for Colorado companies.
Whether you are just beginning to find ways to engage your employees in volunteerism, further your community philanthropy, advance a strategy for community involvement, or are a fully focused Pledge 1%, B Certified Corporation, or Benefit Corporation, you are so important to our state and world. B:CIVIC was created to lead and serve this community, and we believe collaboration and partnership with other like-minded organizations like B Labs and Best for Colorado will strengthen all of the efforts.
The Best for Colorado campaign launched June 8 to provide a challenge and on-line impact assessment that helps businesses measure the impact of their worker, community, and environmental business practices. The Best for Colorado Challenge is the core of the Best for Colorado campaign, which encourages and supports Colorado businesses making positive changes to their business practices.
The program is coordinated through B Labs and the City of Denver, along with several partners including B:CIVIC. B:CIVIC also serves on the Steering Committee, and B:CIVIC member Dan Mulligan of YellowDog Printing & Graphics and yellowDogLab, was one of the speakers.
“Colorado is home to some of the most innovative, inspiring, and impactful companies in the world. And yet, we have room to grow. If even one percent of businesses in our state stepped up to do just one thing to help create good jobs and stronger communities, it would affect the future of thousands of Coloradans,” says B Lab Colorado Director Kim Coupounas.
She added, “We’re so proud to have B:CIVIC as a Best for Colorado Partner. Together, united around the cause of business as a force for good, Colorado’s great impact-focused businesses, municipalities, and civic organizations like B:CIVIC can do so much more for the prosperity of our state than any of us can do alone.”
