We’re beaming over here. BEAMIN’!
Our very own Kelly Clements, is the NEWEST board member of VBSR (Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility)!
VBSR is a statewide, nonprofit business association with a mission to leverage the power of business for positive social and environmental impact.
VBSR’s mission is, in turn Gordon’s mission as well! Positive social and environmental mindfulness, interwoven into all of our business practices.
“Here at GWD, we value the learning that comes from continuous improvement, human connection, and humor. ‘We been crafted quality shades here in Vermont since 1986. We repair, instead of replace, so less and less end up in landfills’. Ours is a company filled with a team creating and experiencing genuine connection daily. That is powerful, especially during these times of global upheaval. We are grateful to our clients, that have allowed us to be a part of something bigger than a business transaction- thankful for welcoming us into their homes and lives and perhaps even, hearts.” shares Kelly.

We advance VBSR’s mission through:
We provide concrete resources and information to help improve our members’ triple-bottom-line business practices. Empowering our members to solve environmental, social and economic problems, we share such successes with legislative bodies, news media, and the general public.
We initiate tangible change in public policy that combats exploitation and promotes sustainability. We work to capture the inherent power of business to represent socially responsible ideals to legislative bodies, news media, and the general public.
We strengthen connections among the community of businesspeople focusing on socially responsible businesses and facilitate peer-to-peer sharing of triple bottom line practices and policies to encourage more leading edge practices that improve our economy, environment and communities.
VBSR has a diverse business membership that represents all sectors and geographic regions of Vermont. To see our current members, please consult our member directory.
VBSR’s sister organization is the Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility–Research & Education Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
