Ideas Description

Social Software Do Good for Business is a platform that allows companies to pledge specific social and environmental actions, which they then do for two months. The platform calculates the outcomes of the actions (e.g. CO2 saved by cycling to work). By asking the companies to provide honest feedback it helps to calculate the kinds of activities that are possible and have the largest power to change business practices.
