Gavin Smith, Head of People and Education Support:

“Since the industrial revolution the role of business was to make a profit, where the ends justified the means. There were exceptions who recognised the positive role of business to the community but these were rare.

But business is not beholden to the shareholder, business is beholden to the customer and it is the customer who is demanding change; where business contributes to society and our planet. The Good Business Charter is a signpost to recognise those companies, who are far from perfect, but aspire to contribute to a fair society. We at Brompton believe in that philosophy.”
