The numbers are in: almost all UK voters are behind a proposed change to the law that would see businesses put people and the planet alongside profit when making boardroom decisions.
This year we’re opening the eyes of MPs, policy-makers, business leaders and the public with a two-week campaign — Wake Up to Better Business.
We now have over 2,000 businesses backing the Better Business Act. These businesses are helping us call on the Government to amend Section 172 of the UK Companies Act, to ensure that the interests of people and planet are aligned with profits.
Recent research demonstrates UK public support of businesses having additional responsibilities to people and the planet alongside profit.
To help make the campaign a success, we’re encouraging all coalition members to take action. We’ve put together this toolkit as a guide to help shape all communications across the ‘Wake Up to Better Business’ campaign.
We know this small change in the law can make a big change in the world. That’s why we’re urging you to call on your MP to support this change and help create a fairer, greener future for everybody.
