A Conscious Conversation on Stakeholders: the Environment
The environment is the only one of a business’s stakeholders that is silent. Yet, conscious businesses treat the environment as an equal with their other stakeholders. They seek to understand their environmental impacts, to find ways to minimize those impacts and to take advantage of “green” commercial opportunities.
What businesses have found is that a conscious approach to engaging with the environment can also deepen their relationships with customers, raise the loyalty and morale of their team members, lower the cost of doing business, and build trust within their communities. In other words, the environment can be leveraged to improve engagement with other stakeholders – but only if an organization’s approach to engaging the environment is authentic and has a real impact.
The Conscious Capitalism Boston chapter will bring together a group of leaders to explore how organizations engage with the environment in ways that have a positive impact on the environment, as well as with other stakeholders.

About the Conscious Conversations series Our Conscious Conversations are designed to facilitate peer exchange about a specific aspect of Conscious Capitalism. Each event consists of a short panel discussion, followed by small group discussions to allow participants to share ideas, challenges and solutions. We leave plenty of time to make new connections with other conscious capitalists.
Who we are Our mission is to connect, educate and inspire leaders and workers to consciously build businesses that positively impact the world. Members of the Boston chapter of Conscious Capitalism are diverse individuals who recognize the power of capitalism to improve the human condition and create enduring value for all stakeholders. We come from organizations large and small, at different stages of our careers, from CEO to student. We’re bound by our common curiosity about these ideas and the desire to create change in organizations and society.
This event is brought to you with the special support of ImpactHub Boston.
