Invite all companies that are based and operating in the municipality to create their own Common Good Balance Sheets. This will highlight the pioneers and serve to promote their achievements. This could take the form of annual awards for ECG Companies, which would publicise their exceptional service to the community and provide a platform for meaningful discussions on socio-political principles, or favouring companies with a good Common Good Balance Sheet when awarding contracts or making purchases.
In some regions, consultants and auditors will be on hand to assist groups of pioneer organisations, from initial information about ECG to creating the first audited balance sheet. Municipalities could promote these moderated groups. The process for local companies integrates well with other processes, for example in a LA21 (Local Agenda 21) or regional development process.
