Here is how our members have been working to build better business and a better world:

Spotlight on You

Vince Digneo, sustainability strategist at Adobe, explains why supporting sustainable processes is as important as ever on the Adobe Blog. “In a future where more business takes place digitally, at a pace the paper world simply can’t match, our collective workforce can remain effective, and even boost productivity,” says Digneo. “In the long term, agile measures like these will reduce an organization’s overall environmental impact—helping create a smart, and sustainable, future for the world we all share.”

Elizabeth Dobers, executive director of business banking for BBVA, was featured on for the bank's response to provide loans to small businesses through the Paycheck Protection Program—a huge undertaking as more than 19,000 small businesses in her home state of Alabama have received $3.8 billion in Small Business Administration loans through the program. “It has changed the way all of us work together,” she said. “This program is a big part of what we felt was the industry’s calling, to get the economy back on track.” Colleague Christina Anderson, SVP and director of external communications, commended the program on LinkedIn: "Hugely proud of the role BBVA is playing in keeping businesses and their employees afloat during this global challenge."
