RI Grows Podcast Episode
Mr. Schartner mentioned that RI Grows follows the corporate philosophy of Conscientious Capitalism (https://www.scu.edu/business/about/strategic-priorities/conscientious-capitalism/ ).
Conscientious Capitalism is the application of personal virtue, purpose, and accountability to individual leadership of business organizations and to the critical decisions that inspire employees and companies to drive innovation, market leadership, and profits by serving employees, customers, stakeholders, and the community.
Exeter is mentioned once during this talk as the grand recipient of the oxygen created by the greenhouse. Engaging the Exeter community has been an afterthought in this project from the start; there has been nothing conscientious about it.
It’s nice to know we’ll be a good source of jobs for Providence residents and furthering the market control of Mastronardi Produce (who are conveniently not mentioned by name.)
