What is the Good Business Charter?

What is the Good Business Charter?

The Good Business Charter was designed with members of the general public in mind!

We are founded by retailer Julian Richer – and he knows that people do care about shopping with responsible businesses – but they often don’t know who is behaving responsibly … and who is not!

Which is why the GBC was launched – to solve that problem.  To be a clear signpost to those organisations that are walking the walk, not just talking the talk.  Who are doing the specific, practical things that show they are caring about people and planet.

The Good Business Charter is a clear indicator that differentiates those organisations that can commit to our 10 components from those who cannot. 

What can you do?

We want to raise the bar on business behaviour, we want places where the GBC’s principles are championed, we want to help people make the right choices when it comes to working for, donating to, supplying and shopping with different organisations. 

If you want to get involved in our mission, here is what you can do to help: 

Support Responsible Businesses

Search our directory or look for the GBC Accredited stamp to discover organisations you can shop with and support.

Speak to your employer

If you work, and your employer is not GBC accredited, why not ask them to take a look at whether they can accredit – you may be able to change things for better where you work as they embed our framework and commit to all 10 components

Follow us on social media

The more awareness we can raise of the GBC, the more the movement will grow. Engage with us on social media and encourage others to get involved.

Report your concerns

We want our GBC champions to be held to account – please let us know what you think about them as we celebrate the good stories of great business, as well as hear your concerns.
