Advocacy

P3 Utah is building a strong and focused voice for the community of socially and environmentally responsible businesses.  Together, in all our actions, we serve as ambassadors for the triple bottom line value system for business.

Our members choose which issues they wish to engage with and the P3 Utah Board takes a position of selective issues on an ongoing basis.  Our members are afforded opportunities to contribute to:

  • Shaping government policy;
  • Influence the value system and activities of traditional business organizations; and
  • Increase consumer awareness of how their collective purchasing and investing decisions can have a profound influence on their long term quality of life.

We strive to establish a level playing field for competitive commercial activity and, where appropriate, to provide incentives for businesses to strive toward more positive impacts.
