About GOOD Worldwide 

GOOD is a global community of, by, and for pragmatic idealists working towards individual and collective progress. Good.is is the platform for collaboration amongst members of the GOOD community and the organizations and corporations that work with the GOOD community. GOOD Magazine is the quarterly print publication that reflects the activity and work of the GOOD community, both on- and offline. GOOD Corps is a team of social entrepreneurs who work with NGOs, corporations and foundations to drive progress in collaboration with the GOOD community and beyond. These efforts are organized and coordinated from their headquarters in Los Angeles, where they pursue the mission to convene, connect, and empower all who give a damn. 

We became a Certified B Corporation because we believe the standards, accountability, community, and resources will help us be a better business, and we believe that business can be a force for good.

The Change We Seek®

The founders started GOOD with a belief you can simultaneously do well and do good in business. The change they seek is a world where businesses must do good to do well, and a world where everyone has work that allows them to both make a living and make a difference.

 

What makes us a better company?
