Featured CSR Executive Impact-Maker:
Hamdi Ulukaya, CEO, Chobani LLC

As a cause-motivated social entrepreneur hoping to leave our global community a better place, I admire the values and passion of Hamdi Ulukaya, a true American success story.

Hamdi Ulukaya was born in Erzincan, Turkey in 1972 to a semi-nomadic dairy farming Kurdish family. He pursued an opportunity to get a higher education at Ankara University, and later in New York at Adelphi University and SUNY Albany. His entrepreneurial opportunity came when he purchased a Kraft yogurt factory, and helped found Chobani in 2005.

That is just the beginning of Ulukaya’s impact-maker story. He started Chobani, a yogurt manufacturer of greek-style yogurts, offering career opportunities for immigrants like himself, and creating the Chobani Foundation giving 10% of company profits to charity. Ulukaya has supported community projects in New York and Idaho, and has supported and helped establish other entrepreneurs.

As an eyewitness to the massive global refugee problem emanating from the Syrian and Iraqi conflicts where the lives of his fellow Kurds along with Christian and Moslem neighbors have been devastated, Ulukaya pledged to donate $2 million to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. His intention was to provide immediate relief for those being persecuted in Iraq and Syria and to explore philanthropic avenues for helping refugees around the world. Last May,Ulukaya announced that he will donate a majority of his wealth to help refugees around the world under the auspices of The Giving Pledge, started by Warren Buffet and Bill Gates. The Giving Pledge encourages billionaires to donate at least half of their wealth, either during their lifetimes or in their wills.

Ulukaya’s shared generosity as an impact-maker does not forget those who are closest to him and have helped his thriving enterprise. He has pledged to share 10% of the company’s equity estimated to be worth several billion dollars with employees when the company goes public or is sold.

I feel a close connection to Hamdi Ulukaya. Like Hamdi, I was born in Istanbul, Turkey. My family settled in New York hoping to give their only child a better opportunity in life. After many years working for organizations committed to making a difference for people and society, I founded IMPACTism as a way to recognize Impact-Makers like Hamdi Ulukaya as a role model for a generation that is committed to making a positive societal change.

Kudos to Hamdi Ulukaya. May he be blessed for long life and success in his journey to help create a better world for all of us.

Celebrate Earth Day: Friday, April 22, 2016

In 1970, the year of our first Earth Day, the movement gave voice to an emerging consciousness, channeling human energy toward environmental issues. Forty-six years later, it continues to lead with groundbreaking ideas and by the power of our example.

And so it begins. Today. Right here and right now. Earth Day is more than just a single day — April 22, 2016. It’s bigger than attending a rally and taking a stand.

This Earth Day and beyond, let’s make big stuff happen. Let’s plant 7.8 billion trees for the Earth. Let’s divest from fossil fuels and make cities 100% renewable. Let’s take the momentum from the Paris Climate Summit and build on it.

Phillip Haid has a valid point but he also overlooks the industry-wide trend since the late 1990's where companies have become more responsive to socially motivated consumers and investors. Number of companies that have come to understand that being socially responsible corporate citizens (CSR) can also be good business has multiplied, where pressure is now put on those companies that fail to address it. Albeit there are levels of CSR participation, but many more companies do it without special attention or flair for what they do to help build better communities and a better world. We should focus and acknowledge companies small and large that do CSR for no reason other than it is the right thing to do.
