Renewal of the website for “Yunus Social Business Companies in Japan”

There are twelve Yunus Social Business Companies in Japan that adhere to the Seven Principles of Grameen Social Business advocated by 2006 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Professor Muhammad Yunus.

ユヌステキストBased on the altruistic values, “a company that generates no loss and no dividends” can successfully achieve social objectives. Here are the seven principles as written by Professor Yunus:

  1. The business objective will be to overcome poverty, or one or more problems (such as education, health, technology access, and environment) which threaten people and society; not profit maximization.
  2. Financial and economic sustainability.
  3. Investors get back the investment amount only. No dividend is given beyond investment money.
  4. When the investment is paid back, company profit stays with the company for expansion and improvement.
  5. Environmentally conscious.
  6. Workforce gets market wages with better working conditions.
  7. Do it with joy.

Many business owners with the wishes of “making society better for others” naturally follow these seven principles without realizing to solve social issues. Let’s work together for the better world as a social business company.
