We Are Proud to Be A Best For Colorado Company
As a social enterprise, we exist primarily to make a difference in the world – not a profit. This distinction matters to us a great deal, and drives our decision-making and strategy as we bring new products to market and identify clients to serve. However, we wanted to go deeper in our commitment to our community and environment to ensure we’re serving them well in how we operate. With this commitment in mind, we are proud to share that we are now an official “Best for Colorado” company, striving to improve our environmental and social footprint in all aspects of our business.
What is the Best for Colorado Program?
The Alliance Center’s Best for Colorado program serves as the hub for corporate social responsibility for Colorado businesses. It allows companies to measure and improve their social and environmental impact, regardless of where they are on their corporate social responsibility journey. As a startup, we’ve begun reviewing our impacts and creating action plans to improve as we grow over time.
VNL’s Commitment for the Future
Each Best for Colorado company makes its own list of commitments to improve its social and environmental impact in the future. Some examples include providing paid time off for community service, development community partnerships, and providing pro bono or discounted services to underprivileged organizations and movements. We’ll continue to track our progress toward these goals and share more information in the future about our progress.
This is What It Means to Be a Social Enterprise.
It’s easy to say you’re a social enterprise or socially responsible company, but it takes commitment to act on those words. We are excited to publicly put ourselves on notice as a Best for Colorado company, so you can help us remain accountable to our clients, communities and planet.
