About 1000friends

1000friends helps companies to introduce social responsibility in their business model, to ensure that their activity in this field is aligned with their brand values and their marketing strategy. 1000friends can help companies communicate perfectly and effectively in order to gain a powerful competitive advantage.

1000friends is certified B Corp because it's an agency that was created to work with companies to design strategies and projects that have a real and positive social value on their environment. Often companies choose to allocate budgets to projects of Sustainability and Social Responsibility that are not aligned with their values, with their activity, or with their marketing strategy. What we propose is that these projects are part of their marketing strategy, so that they can communicate well and become aligned with their most important company value.

The Change We Seek®

1000friends wants companies that not only explain how they spend their money, but how they earn their money. They want to know how they treat their workers and their value chain, how they outsource their work and under what conditions, whether all people have equal opportunities in its structure and if they pay their taxes correctly. With all of this information, companies will certainly gain an important competitive advantage.
