meeow accredited by the good business charter

We’re officially a good business (we knew that anyway though!)

meeow is delighted to announce it has joined over 830 companies such as Oxfam, Aviva and Deloitte in signing up to the Good Business Charter (GBC). It has never been more important for businesses to regain trust and show they care about more than just profit. This accreditation seeks to raise the bar on business practices for employees, tax, the environment, customers and suppliers.

what is the good business charter?

The Good Business Charter exists for all companies, charities and public sector organisations across all industries and sectors.  At a time when people are starting to care more about who they work for and who they buy from, the GBC offers a straightforward accreditation which recognises organisations that prioritise and care about

  • their employees
  • the environment
  • their customers and suppliers
  • 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.”

why meeow is a good business!

The Good Business Charter is a brilliant way for us to show our commitment to ethical behaviours,” said Chris Rabbitt, meeow CEO and co-founder.

“Our whole business model echoes the 10 components of the GBC. For example, we’re environmentally conscious at our core, as we eliminate the commute to networking. We also have a strong commitment to our customers and consistently monitor their feedback to grow and improve the platform.

“The GBC is a gold standard of business behaviour and we are delighted to have received this accreditation.”
