Jacques Boulet interviews Dan McKinley, CEO of B-Corporation Dog and Bone
Dan and Jacques have a conversation about a kind of ‘in-between’ space between the ‘normal’ capitalist ways of running business and the more ‘radical’ alternatives we often pay attention to in Think Again.
In B-corporations real transformational relationships, processes and structures are actually being experimented with, in a space where central elements of the existing system are not only being talked about but are radically changed whilst at the same time continuing to operate with elements of the existing system… and many of these experiments – and certainly in the case of Dog and Bone - are making a real difference…
THE B CORP DECLARATION OF INTERDEPENDENCE
We envision a global economy that uses business as a force for good. This economy is comprised of a new type of corporation - the B Corporation - Which is purpose-driven and creates benefit for all stakeholders, not just shareholders.
As B Corporations and leaders of this emerging economy, we believe:
- That we must be the change we seek in the world.
- That all business ought to be conducted as if people and place mattered.
- That, through their products, practices, and profits, businesses should aspire to do no harm and benefit all.
- To do so requires that we act with the understanding that we are each dependent upon another and thus responsible for each other and future generations.
