Declaration of Social and Environmental Responsibility
While I know it's unfashionable to make declarations or write in script, for that matter, I've decided to go against the grain. I've prepared this Declaration of Social and Environmental Responsibility as a clear and explicit representation of our intentions.
If you agree and would like to "sign" the declaration, please provide your full name via email as a response to this post.
Whereas disregard for preemptive and proactive solutions to social and environmental issues has resulted in worldwide detriment to planet Earth and the human family,
Whereas social impact is the effect on people and communities that occurs because of an action or inaction, activity, project, program, or policy,
Whereas social enterprises are business that have specific social objectives that seek to maximize profits while maximizing benefits to society and the environment,
NOW, THEREFORE, ATTAIN 9 GLOBAL, its officers, advisors, investors and supporters, proclaim this DECLARATION OF SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY as a common standard of conviction for all people and nations to the end that each, always keeping this Declaration in mind, shall strive by motivating, educating and empowering social entrepreneurs and impact enterprises, to secure the collective social and environmental well-being and advancement of planet Earth and its people.
