Compass Fuel Oils is delighted to announce that it has joined companies such as Aviva, TSB and Schroders Personal Wealth, in signing up to the Good Business Charter (GBC), an accreditation that seeks to raise the bar on business practices for employees, tax, the environment, customers and suppliers.
The Good Business Charter exists for all UK companies, charities and public sector organisations 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 GBC offers a straightforward accreditation, recognising organisations that prioritise and value their employees, customers, suppliers and the environment, whilst also paying their taxes according to the spirit of the law.
It has never been more important for businesses to build trust and show that they care about more than just profit. Therefore, the GBC and its members seek to inspire many other businesses to follow suit.
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.”
Managing Director, Marcus Dandy, said: “We are delighted to have joined the GBC and demonstrate our commitment to the 10 components of the Charter. This is a great opportunity for us to work with others to promote responsible business behaviour and show how much we value our customers, colleagues, suppliers and the environment.”
