    Social conscience is nice, and I do think there are more and more companies making it a priority, but at the end of the day profit is what keeps the doors open.

    Without profit, social conscience counts for ZIP.

    People who run companies have a fiduciary responsibility to make as much profit as possible for the investors.

    Sometimes "social conscience" can be consistent with maximum profit.

    More often, something like "social conscience" is used by companies as virtue signalling, not meaning anything but sucking easily-fooled people into thinking a company is "responsible," or "green," or whatever the popular virture signaling of the day is. That's why most "green" products are overpriced and don't work.

    In general, yes.

    Even if the company has a social conscience, they can't affect the change they want if they do not exist.

    Only if they want to stay in business. Making a profit is how they do that.
