Introduction to the 2016-2020 Strategic Plan
The original 2016-2020 VBSR Strategic Plan was developed by the VBSR board when VBSR was 26 years old. Looking back, the VBSR board noted that what had once seemed radical – the idea that being socially responsible goes hand-in-hand with being successful – had become widely accepted.
As we look ahead, we will continue our mission of advancing a business ethic that values multiple bottom lines – economic, social and environmental, and a continued focus on public influence and education.
Our mission is to foster a business ethic in Vermont that recognizes the opportunity and responsibility of the business community to set a high standard for protecting the natural, human, and economic environments of our citizens.
To achieve this mission, VBSR is focused on three key goals in the 2019-2020 plan period. The goals and the strategies we are undertaking to advance them are outlined below.
