Entrepreneurs for a Sustainable Planet: BLOG

The objective of the "Entrepreneurs for a Sustainable Planet" (EFASP) Blog is to develop a charter of profitable, ethical, and sustainable business practices.


The primary goal of the Blog is to open a discussion of policies and practices that create framework conditions for the small business contribution to the sustainable development initiative. Periodically, contributions will be updated to the "Entrepreneurs for a Better World" charter of business practices (see for background information).
