Seven Principles of Social Business -

by Prof. Muhammad Yunus, World Economic Forum
Davos, Switzerland, January 2009

  1. Business objective will be to overcome poverty, or one or more
    problems (such as education, health, technology access, and
    environment) which threaten people and society; not profit
    maximization 
  2. Financial and economic sustainability
  3. Investors get back their investment amount only;
    no dividend is given beyond investment money 
  4. When investment amount is paid back, company profit stays
    with the company for expansion and improvement 
  5. Environmentally conscious
  6. Workforce gets market wage with better working conditions
  7. ...do it with joy

 


But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep...
