Sign the Pledge to be In Good Company

In Good Company is an initiative for all Lancaster County businesses to build long-term value for your community and for your business. Traveling with your peers—in good company—you’ll position your business for future success and together, we’ll distinguish Lancaster as a national leader in the good business movement.

Business Pledge for the Future

Lancaster County has a tradition of building successful businesses on strong values.

Many Lancaster business leaders have an intuitive sense of what makes a company great: being driven by values, focusing on people, and deep connection to our local community.

Even when not explicitly stated, many companies live by these ideals and these are the raw materials that are key to our current success.

However, as we look to the future, we believe we have an obligation to do more.

The landscape of business is evolving and shifting the culture of business to one that values everyone impacted by our companies including our employees, customers, suppliers, and the natural environment—alongside the owners and shareholders.

Never before have the expectations of our companies been higher, and we are excited to lean into those enhanced expectations to take an even greater responsibility for the health of our communities.

We are committed to placing Lancaster County at the forefront of this movement by intentionally aligning our business practices with the overall well-being of our community.

We acknowledge that this is a journey and the path forward is imperfect. However, we commit to traveling together—in good company—with our peers in the Lancaster business community. This shared commitment will help Lancaster stand apart as an economy where every resident can prosper.

I commit to being a part of this journey.

We are in.
