Accountable Impact Wins Social Impact Business of the Year Award

MIAMI, FL – June 11, 2021 – (LATINX NEWSWIRE) - Accountable Impact has been awarded the Social Impact Business of the Year Award 2021 by the Latin American Business Association (LABA) as part of its Annual Business Awards Luncheon and Expo which took place at the grand Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, FL on May 26, 2021. The emergent social impact enterprise was recognized among seventeen South Florida businesses for its groundbreaking and innovative work in advising companies to proactively incorporate social, environmental, and economic sustainability goals within their organizations. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are an urgent call for action by governments, businesses, civil society, academia, and scientists around the world to ensure that all human beings can enjoy prosperous and fulfilling lives and that economic, social, and technological progress occurs in harmony with nature.

Accountable Impact is launching the SDG Impact Pledge in partnership with Social Impact Movement and CIC Miami. The Pledge presents a corporate SDG model for businesses committed to “doing well by doing good” by focusing on the 3 P’s of Sustainable Development: People, Planet and Prosperity. The Pledge provides a community of practice for shared learning and intentional collaboration to co-design a Sustainable Miami.

“Companies are often faced with the complex responsibility of developing sustainability strategies for their organizations with limited understanding or experience on how to incorporate and successfully execute long term sustainability goals within the company. Accountable Impact works alongside companies who sign the SDG Impact Pledge to adopt the SDGs so their teams can more easily integrate ongoing sustainability practices into the culture of the company,” said Accountable Impact CEO and Founder Scarlett Lanzas.

Accountable Impact will host a breakfast to share details about the program and the goals of the SDG Impact Pledge on August 4th at 8:00 a.m. at CIC Miami, 1951 NW 7th Avenue, #600, Miami, FL 33136. For more information, please send an email to: slanzas@emergentgc.com.
