VBSR's mission is to advance a business ethic that values multiple bottom lines - economic, social, and environmental. We do this by:
Empowering our members to solve environmental, social and economic problems. We provide concrete resources and information to help improve our members' business practices.
Initiating tangible change in public policy that combats exploitation and promotes sustainability. We work to capture the inherent power of business to represent socially responsible ideals to legislative bodies, news media, and the general public.
Enabling every worker to live and work with respect and dignity by creating work environments and economic climates that provide fair income in safe work settings, and allow each employee to contribute to a high quality product or service.
