Our Commitment to Sustainability

As a public benefit corporation, we follow the hybrid business model that bridges the non-profit public benefit aspects in a for-profit enterprise. This model of business incorporates our mission of stimulating and facilitating trade among the Americas, intended to create economic opportunities for small and medium-sized businesses and entrepreneurs, as well as startups. We believe that by enabling trade among businesses of all sizes we will achieve a more inclusive economy. This will have a lasting impact on the communities where those economic opportunities are created.


The efficacy of our business model relies on the enhancement of a socially responsible commitment to corporate socially responsible practices and the creation of a public benefit, as well as accountability, transparency, and stakeholder engagement. This goes hand in hand with our commitment to sustainability, which has been acknowledged by the UN as a paradigm for the 21st century (OECD, 2016; UN, 2015) that calls for business to serve society.


The collaboration of our members and partners will create economic development across the Americas: this is the future of a sustainable and inclusive economy.
