Conscious Business Philosophy
As a Conscious Business, we intend to generate every form of value that matters: emotional, social, and financial. And we plan to make decisions out of love for all of our stakeholders, including employees, customers, investors, and the larger communities in which our business will participate. Not because it’s politically correct; because it’s the right thing to do and the ultimate path to long-term competitive advantage.
