We are delighted to announce that we have recently signed up to the Good Business Charter (GBC), an accreditation that seeks to raise the bar on best business practices for employees, tax, the environment, customers and suppliers.
Since we were founded by Delia Porter in 2014, we have always put our people and best practice before profit, so we were pleased to hear about the Good Business Charter at a sustainable, co-working event in Kingston in May this year. We have been working towards complying with their 10 components to gain accreditation and be recognised as an organisation which prioritises and cares for their employees, the environment, customers and suppliers, whilst also paying their taxes according to the spirit of the law.
The Good Business Charter has the support of both the CBI and the TUC which both have trustee representation on its board. Other partners of the GBC include the Living Wage Foundation and the Prompt Payment Code.
Chairman of the GBC board, Simon Fox, said:
“The Good Business Charter brings together 10 standards, most of which already exist, but in separate places. We have brought them together to give a coherent overall position for businesses to aspire to. We believe that the GBC has enormous potential to change business practice for good. We hope that because of its simplicity and cost effectiveness, it will quickly gain support.”
