fostering equitable, sustainable futures
Three3 (ThreeCubed) is a 501(c)3 research non-profit that conducts innovative and interdisciplinary social science research while offering educational programming to promote the integrated achievement of the three pillars of sustainability—equity, environment, and economics—in combination.
Black Lives Matter
The mission of Three3 remains rooted in the imperative to achieve equitable, sustainable futures. Our organization works to meaningfully establish racial equity and justice into the cross-sector research we conduct, in our facilitation of policymaking and program evaluation, and by applying a human rights-based framework to our work. In solidarity with Black Lives Matter, we strive to do better. We remain committed to donating our social science capabilities to under-funded local community initiatives for racial justice and parity, and for black dignity and freedoms. We remain ever vigilant in the monitoring and evaluation of both the benefits and burdens produced by current and historical policies, programs, and budgets enacted locally and across this country. As always, we remain truly grateful to black and brown community members across the South that have allowed us inside their homes for us to gather stories and struggles with energy affordability and housing quality. Your stories are gifts and we will continue to elevate and amplify your voice so that we might move toward a new social contract; one where Black Lives Matter.
Other actions: In response to the need for explicit antiracist actions, Three3 reviewed and revised our employee handbook this week and has initiated Social Responsibility Reporting for our company that will include an annual review of our policies and organizational culture, subcontractor and vendor selections, and financial investments. To better align with our mission and personal values, we have also determined the need to identify and commit to Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) investment funds for our company’s 401K with a focus on social sustainability.
