Bates Wells Joins The Good Business Charter

We’re delighted to announce that, after working with philanthropist and businessman Julian Richer to set up the Good Business Charter (GBC), we have now achieved accreditation ourselves.

The Good Business Charter (GBC) is an accreditation that seeks to raise the bar on business practices for employees, tax, the environment, customers and suppliers. Bates Wells has also successfully completed our own Good Business Charter Accreditation.

The Good Business Charter exists for all companies and charities with 10 employees or more across all industries and sectors and works through a simple online self-certification process. At a time when people are caring more about who they work for and who they buy from, the Good Business Charter offers a straightforward accreditation which recognises organisations which prioritise and care for their employees, the environment, customers and suppliers, whilst also paying their taxes according to the spirit of the law. The GBC and its members seek to inspire many other businesses to follow suit.
