We are thrilled to share that were named to the Game Changers 500 list! Game Changers 500 is an annual ranking of the world’s top for-benefit businesses published by Conscious Company magazine. They seek out organizations that utilize business not only to make money, but to also make the world a better place.
Game Changers “exist[s] to accelerate the transition to a for-benefit economy: an economy that grows love, promotes unity, and cares for the one planet we call home.” Its mission is to create a critical mass of thriving for-benefit businesses in every major city in thew world. This mission is achieved through core values (1) collaborating rather than competing, (2) the power of “smartnerships” to accomplish more with less, and (3) a simple creed that “our businesses exist to benefit society”.
Green City Growers became a Benefit Corporation (B Corp) in 2014. This certification comes with a dual mission that combines bottom-line success and social responsibility, which has been apart of the GCG mission from the very beginning. By providing the support businesses and homeowners need to grow fresh food, GCG significantly impacts obesity rates, food access issues, and the environment.
Today, there are over 2,000 companies that are certified B Corporations. Some well-known businesses include Patagonia, Ben & Jerry’s, Cabot, and Etsy. We are proud to be one of them!
