The Good Business Charter is a simple accreditation which business across the UK sign up to in recognition of responsible business practices.
It measures behaviour over 10 components: real living wage, fairer hours and contracts, employee well-being, employee representation, diversity and inclusion, environmental responsibility, paying fair tax, commitment to customers, ethical sourcing, and prompt payment.
The Good Business Charter is an initiative of the Good Business Foundation, a charity registered in England and Wales. The CBI (Confederation of British Industry) and the TUC (Trades Union Congress) both have trustee representation on the board of the Good Business Foundation to ensure that the voices of business and employees are heard.
The Good Business Foundation worked in collaboration with FSB (Federation of Small Businesses) to develop a streamlined version of the accreditation which is accessible to organisations with 50 employees or less which was launched in January 2021.
At The Potions Cauldron and Hole in Wand, with stores and venues across York and Blackpool, we are proud recognised as practicing these responsible business practices.
