Declaration d independance

 "WE MUST BE THE CHANGE WE WISH TO SEE IN THE WORLD."

All business must be done as if people and the planet matter. Through their products, practices and profits, companies should aspire not only to do no harm, but also to benefit all. To do this, we must act in the knowledge that we are all dependent on one another and thus responsible for each other and future generations*.
