Profit with Purpose Magazine

On a mission

The mission of the 'Profit with Purpose Magazine' is to use the power of communication to raise awareness, inspire action and empower innovators to create a sustainable and just economy.

This seasonal print publication is published twice a year and dedicated to leaders from the business, research and policy sectors, addressing pressing social and environmental issues. Each issue covers a central theme, such as carbon management, leadership or circular cities.

The magazine features easy-to-digest content related to sustainable business, social entrepreneurship, circular economy, climate change, sustainable development and everything at the intersection of People, Planet, and Profit.

It is published in Ireland, primarily focusing on European affairs. The production is supported by the Enterprise and Economic Development Department at Dublin City Council and the Local Enterprise Office Dublin City.

Why print?

The power of reading

The publication is only available in print format for a reason.

The amount of time we spend in front of the screen has increased dramatically, which is not good for mental health. Also, there is a substantial digital carbon footprint we create by using big files.

So we wanted to make something that you can actually touch and feel and read from the comfort of your couch or on the train or sitting out in the park. That way, you can enjoy good old-fashioned reading instead of scrolling and maybe scribble a few notes on the pages.

Each issue is more of a book, filled with content you want to keep and not throw away. The production is done with every care to make it environmental friendly from start to finish, including using Carbon Balanced paper for printing.

Also, we are collaborating with a non-profit organisation on managing carbon offsetting to make the magazine carbon-negative while supporting climate-smart communities in Africa.

Winter 2021/22 edition

Make change happen

We know that change has to happen at scale and fast to address the pressing issues of our time, such as climate change, social inequalities, loss of biodiversity and many more.

But how do you actually make change happen? How do you deliver on the expectation of making a positive impact as a leader?

In this edition, you will find exclusive interviews with experienced changemakers and leaders, while you can explore insights about creating a sustainability mindset, see artworks from the Social Art Award 2021 and find out if sustainability can be funny, among other topics.

The big carbon issue

Carbon management for business is one of the hottest topics with overwhelming information to process from regulations to customer expectations and latest innovations.

With more companies pledging to handle their carbon emission and with the EU Green Deal aiming to make Europe the first carbon neutral contintent until 2050, this is a trend that will impact every organisation.

We dedicated this issue to bring this new carbon-focused world closer, making it easier for leaders to plan for the future and define their strategies.
