The Partnership for Responsible Business is committed to projects that support local economies, reflect the needs of New Mexico’s unique communities, and support sustainable rural and urban economic development. We strive to create public awareness for businesses and consumers interested in investing in people, protecting our planet, and creating long-term sustainable profits.
We work to educate the public as to the benefits of “Thinking Local” by keeping their dollars invested in their local economies. Buying local provides a positive multiplier benefit to the community. At the same time, buying local avoids negative health and environmental impacts of supply-chain transportation.
We work to educate business owners on practices that enable them to conserve resources. Better practices include reducing energy use, conserving water, mitigating carbon, increasing recycling, and supplying locally. We believe responsible business owners can in turn provide broader leadership to the community to make these conservation practices more commonplace.
