Theory of Change

How Good 4 Business understands the problem and solutions

  1. Problem Statement:  The existing economic paradigm prioritises maximising shareholder profit without considering the broader consequences. This approach has led to the exploitation of natural and human resources, contributing to a climate crisis.
  2. Proposed Solution:  To address these challenges, we advocate for a transformative shift towards a more sustainable economic system—one in which businesses operate for the collective well-being of both people and the planet
  3. The role of B Corp Certification: The B Corp certification framework emerges as a key tool for businesses seeking to positively measure and enhance their social and environmental impact (B Corp 2023). By adhering to B Corp principles, companies can strategically contribute to sustainable development
  4. The role of SMEs:  Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), comprising 90% of global businesses and supporting over 70% of employment (WEF 2023), are pivotal in fostering innovation necessary to tackle complex global issues.
  5. The role of B Corp Advocates:  B Corp advocates are essential in promoting and instigating positive change within organisations.
