WHAT IS JUST?
The JUST program is a voluntary disclosure tool for organizations created by the Living Future Institute. It is a transparency platform for organizations to disclose their operations, including how they treat their employees and where they make financial and community investments. The JUST label is a nutrition label for socially just and equitable organizations.
JUST marks the beginning of a new era of corporate transparency. The Institute invites organizations everywhere to evaluate themselves through this social justice and equity lens and become a JUST organization. With support from participating organizations, JUST will help create a better, more socially just and equitable world.
