The Good Business Charter

Forshaw Associates Limited Good Business Charter accreditation

Forshaw Associates Ltd Also T/As Bradex Business Solutions is delighted to announce it has joined companies such as Aviva, Citizens Advice and Deloitte in signing up to the Good Business Charter (GBC). This accreditation seeks to raise the bar on business practices for employees, tax, the environment, customers and suppliers.

It has never been more important for businesses to regain trust and show they care about more than just profit.

The Good Business Charter exists for all 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 Good Business Charter offers a specific 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 supports 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.”


Managing Director of Forshaw Associates Limited said:

“Carl Bradshaw, Managing Director says being accredited by the Good Business Charter demonstrates a clear commitment to providing a living wage not only for our employees but also for our sub-contractors, along with alignment with our company values for the environment, caring for our employees and all stakeholders of the business
