Virgin Unite - USA is the American based affiliate of Virgin Unite based in the United Kingdom. Virgin Unite connects amazing people and great ideas to make positive change happen in the world. We're not about a single issue or about one big campaign, we're about a way of living and working that aspires to put people and planet alongside profit at the core of all we do. We move beyond charity and CSR. It's not about saving the world, it's about reinventing how we live and work in the world, and showing that business can and must be a force for good (and that this is good for business).
