The Good Business Charter components

Find out more about our components

Our 10 components are designed to recognise commitment to good business practice and inspire organisations to change behaviour, where required. Click here to find out more.

The Good Business Charter is a simple accreditation which organisations in the UK can 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.

An organisation must meet all 10 commitments to receive GBC accreditation. Open to private sector, public sector and charities of all sizes including a streamlined version for organisations with 50 employees or less.
