LEaF Translations is delighted to announce it has joined companies and organisations such as Brompton, TSB and Amnesty International 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.
LEaF Translations is proud to be the first translation company in the UK to join the GBC. It has never been more important for businesses to regain trust and show they care about more than just profit.
Lucy Pembayun, Founder of LEaF Translations, said:
LEaF Translations was founded for two reasons: to provide the best translations around and to show that business can and should be ethical, whatever the industry. We have been espousing the values of ethical business since the very beginning. As such, it is a real honour to be the first translation company in the UK to be accredited by the Good Business Charter.
The Good Business Charter exists for all companies and charities 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.
The Good Business Charter has the support of both the CBI and the TUC which both have trustee representation on its board. Other partners of the GBC include the Living Wage Foundation and the Prompt Payment Code. The GBC has been set up by a charity called the Good Business Foundation and accreditation will be free for all companies in the first year.
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. We hope that because of its simplicity and cost effectiveness, it will quickly gain support.
