social responsibility

The fresh and integrated approach of inclusive businesses

Maria Rodriguez's picture

Are businesses and social interest initiatives mutually exclusive? I guess for a lot of people the answer to this question would be “YES!” because they perceive that what is profitable for a company does not create any social impact besides employment generation. I am surprised how frequently I get comments like “business administrators only think about money.” You know what? They should! They should because no company or organization can be sustainable without economic resources.
