The founders of COMMON discuss how they are redefining the anatomy of a brand to create socially responsible companies with strong values that still turn billion-dollar profits.

When corporate profits rival the GDP of certain nations, don't multi-billion dollar corporations have some sort of societal obligation to fultfill? John Bielenberg and Rob Schuham discussed a new kind of capitalism, at the PSFK CONFERENCE SAN FRANCISCO, that creates a more collaborative, responsible economy that still turns a substantial profit. Their solution is COMMON, the collaborative brand for products, businesses and shared-value communities.

Under this large brand umbrella, hundreds of companies and products can make the commitment to work for social good. Billed as an ‘open-source living network for a new brand of capitalism,' John and Rob are redefining how we think about contemporary economics, and the anatomy of a company.
