Students for Responsible Business (SRB)
[now renamed Net Impact]

"Students for Responsible Business (SRB) was created in October of 1993 as a community of graduate and undergraduate business school students and alumni who believe that a new model is emerging in business today. SRB believes that companies no longer are only responsible to their shareholders, but they are also responsible for the well-being of their colleagues and employees, the communities in which they operate, and the natural environment that we all share. As future leaders, SRB members believe that they can and should be in the forefront of changing the role of business in society. But to do this, they need role models, documented evidence and tangible experiences that demonstrate that it is possible to combine business success and societal good. SRB's programs are designed to fulfill these needs.

…SRB was created with the support of the Social Venture Network (SVN) and Business for Social Responsibility (BSR), two not-for-profit membership organizations of individuals and businesses committed to integrating ideals of a just and sustainable future into daily business life.

Where SVN might be considered a Young Professionals Organization for leaders interested in building personal relationships and serving their communities, BSR is more like a Chamber of Commerce for firms with similar goals and objectives.

…Currently SRB has over 600 members from seventy five school across the U.S.

SRB publishes a quarterly newsletter, SRB Newsletter and has a web site at They also host a yearly conference. "
