Our world changes quickly and we desperately need to begin to change the way we think about ourselves, each other and the world we share. We believe we have a stewardship obligation and a choice. We can either decide to work together and help each other, or allow self-interest and malaise be the foundation of our society’s guiding principles. We think not.
Building and growing a company is not just about making money. Certainly, making money is important, but it is only one part of a much bigger picture. In a world of uncertainly, non-accountable governance, global economic pressures, joblessness and diminishing resources, it is not just governments that need to solve our world’s problems. Increasingly enterprises (and we as individuals) need to step up and lend a hand to help solve society’s and our planet’s woes. Whether we like it or not, living on this pea-sized world in a vast universe, we are all in this together. For now at least, there is no other place to live, no other place to go, except here. Either we work together to make our country and our world a sustainable place to live and to raise future generations, or we will eventually circle the drain together, until the world as we know it is no more.
