Values-based firms like yours live the power of business to do well and do good. But too often, the foundational rules that govern our economy allow irresponsible actions to go unchecked and end up rewarding damaging practices. They let irresponsible firms externalize their costs like climate damage and safety net-dependent workers onto the rest of us. Tax breaks, regulatory carve-outs and other “corporate welfare” programs do little to incentivize responsible behavior. Shareholder primacy dominates, while scant attention is paid to increasing wages or enabling more workers to own a piece of the economy. As a result, the moral and financial solvency of our capitalist system is being questioned! But what if we built a more competitive, fair, inclusive and sustainable American economy?
ASBC is here to change the tired old view of “what business wants,” change those dysfunctional rules, and save our economy by making capitalism work for all. Join us at the Summit, December 10-11 in Washington, D.C., and help make it happen. You’ll be in good company!
"Don't miss the Summit! It's the best forum I know for leaders of sustainable businesses to work together on critical policy issues."
― Deb Nelson, Vice President, Client and Community Engagement, RSF Social Finance
