Social capitalists of the world unite

1 Comment

Looking around the web the other day I came across the FastCompany 2008 Social Capitalist Awards.

Along with a bunch of 45 not-for-profits, there is also an interesting list of 10 “companies not only striving to make a profit, but to also make a difference.” This seems to me to be the most interesting subset of social venturing firms – companies that somehow work with both aims in mind.

FastCompany’s list includes, purely for your inspiration:

These may be small companies, but many are having a big impact. DWM, for example, has $250 million under management.
SustainAbility seems to be the only UK entrant. Does anyone know of an equivalent list for the UK?
