The Conscious Business Declaration

Posted 11.9.2015

The Fowler Center for Business as an Agent of World Benefit joins Humanity’s Team, The Club of Budapest, and The Goi Peace Foundation to create the Conscious Business Declaration.

The Declaration seeks to unite and support the emerging global community of business leaders who operate in a way that consciously aligns with the interconnected and interdependent nature of the world.

Conscious Business Declaration

As a global community of business leaders we are committed to developing the awareness and skills needed to consciously evolve our organizations in alignment with these principles:

  1. We are one with humanity and all of life. Business and all institutions of the human community are integral parts of a single reality — interrelated, interconnected and interdependent.
  2. In line with this reality, the purpose of business is to increase economic prosperity while contributing to a healthy environment and improving human wellbeing.
  3. Business must go beyond sustainability and the philosophy of “do no harm” to restoring the self-renewing integrity of the Earth.
  4. Integrity requires that business operates with complete economic, social, and financial transparency.
  5. A successful business behaves as a positive and proactive member of the local and global communities in which it operates.
  6. Business that sees, honors, and celebrates the essential interconnected nature of all human beings and all life maximizes human potential and helps create a world that works for all.
  7. When aligned with oneness, business is the most powerful engine on Earth for creating prosperity and flourishing for all.
