Above the Bottom Line keeps you informed of how the world's most influential companies are taking a stance on the issues you care about. 

ABL started in February 2017 as a weekly newsletter, and I need your help investing in its next phase of growth!

My vision is to redefine "business as usual.” I seek to do that in three ways:
  1. Continue to deliver a high-quality newsletter that provides timely commentary and analysis on important social, political and environmental issues, in addition to curated headlines and cleverly selected GIFs (of course!).
  2. Launch a full blown Above the Bottom Line podcast that explores how companies and executives are fighting the status quo and redefining business as usual.
  3. Develop a new platform that effectively leverages the voices of individuals like you to influence corporate decisions related to the issues you care about most.

I am deeply passionate about building a world where companies don’t profit at the expense of people or the planet. Each week my intern, Lora, and I invest our time making Above the Bottom Line the best resource it can be.

If you value Above the Bottom Line and are excited about this vision, becoming a patron is the best way to support its sustainability and growth. Your support at any tier will truly make a difference.

My ultimate dream is for ABL to influence companies to operate more responsibly.

Join the ABL Patreon community, and let's achieve this dream together!

Love,
Nikita
