Business Alliance for a Sustainable Economy – Kansas City (BASE KC) http://www.basekc.org/ Kansas City, MO Act Local First | Advocacy, Business Network / Alliance We envision a world where all businesses use the power inherent in a for-profit endeavor to create social and environmental good. In this world, businesses evaluate profit not only in financial terms but also social and environmental impact. These businesses are creative in finding ways to improve life for present and future generations in a way that is healthy for the company (both leadership and employees), the community (local and global), and our global ecology. The Business Alliance for a Sustainable Economy – Kansas City (BASE KC) is an effective resource for locally-owned businesses that are committed to social and environmental impacts as well as profitability. We support and challenge each other in our endeavor to create a better world. We will lead other businesses by our example in making values-based decisions. We believe that to be a sustainable business it is essential to establish new business models that value the three Ps: people, planet, profit.
