Both Cooperatives Europe and Fair Trade have been actively engaged in promoting enterprises that place people and not profit at the heart of business.
Harriet Lamb, CEO of Fair Trade International, explained: “Businesses alone are not enough to tackle poverty; the EU should foster people-centred businesses. Cooperatives and Fair Trade have shown that they put high standards and strict rules on businesses, that they put people first, and still they are successful.”

'Just changing the way business is done, if only by a few companies, can change the flow of wealth, ease and eliminate poverty, and leave us all with something better to worry about. Basic human needs such as food and shelter are fundamental human rights; there are more than enough resources available to go around--if we can just figure out how to share. It cannot be "Me first, mine first"; rather, "Me, too" is more the order of the day.'

It's been said that Labour wasn't forceful enough in rebutting Tory claims that they caused the financial crisis. It could be argued that they didn't see it coming nor the need to limit the impact #socent #peopleb4profit   http://www.p-ced.com/1/node/416

In 2009 UI business secretary Lord Mandelson said his department were helping firms which help others. That's not how it turned out for us.

Selfie sticks obsessions aside (not a fan, sorry), I see the moral fibre and generosity of Gen Y first-hand. We refuse to work for brands that aren't ethical or inspiring (we won't buy from them either), rally support for community causes and have a decidedly 'global-local' mindset.

A recent paper from chief justice Strine argues for "The Need for a Clear-Eyed Understanding of the Power and Accountability Structure Established by the Delaware General Corporation Law"

The following passage drew my attention:

"It may well be the case that a certificate of incorporation that said that a for-profit corporation would put other constituencies’ interests on par with stockholders would, in view of § 101(b), be respected and supersede the corporate common law. But, in the case of silence, the idea that directors can subordinate stockholder interests to other interests of  the directors’ choosing is strained and at odds with the structure of our overall statute.
"As to the corporations whose behavior is most important to society in this debate – for-profit corporations – the bare citation to § 102(a) exposes the market reality, which is that large corporations have not used this as a method to put specific non-stockholder related purposes in their corporate certificates. That is, one does not find many, if any, public companies that say that they exist to pursue any lawful business for the purpose of protecting the environment, curing disease, or alleviating hunger.
"And historically, states, including Delaware, adopted statutes permitting corporate charters to simply state that the corporation was authorized to pursue “any lawful business or purposes” for a reason entirely unrelated to permitting for-profit corporations to put the interests of nonstockholder constituencies first."
