BUSINESS AS A FORCE FOR GOOD

 

 
 

Indigenous Pact is a Public Benefit Company. Which means we are legally required to consider the impact of our decisions on American Indians and Alaska Natives. Our purpose as stated in our bylaws of the company:

  • “As its specific purpose, the Company shall provide health care benefits and reimbursements to American Indians and Alaska Natives and promote the autonomy and sovereignty of American Indian tribal governments over the health of their people”
     
  • This means that our business has a double bottom line.  We prioritize both social and financial returns for our customers and shareholders.
     
  • The B stands for B the Change, inspired by Gandhi’s famous invocation that we must be the change we seek in the world.  We believe that doing good is not at odds with generating profit. By creating greater financial inclusion we can mindfully generate more impact. This is the foundation for a brighter future, built to unlock the potential for sovereign nations to achieve optimal health.
