Star Uretech joins the Good Business Charter Star

Star Uretech is delighted to announce it has joined companies such as Capita, London  City Airport and Deloitte 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.

Star Uretech is proud to be the first in the Resin Flooring sector to join the GBC. 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 and charities with 10 employees or more 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 bought 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.”

Mark Almond of Star Uretech Ltd, said:“We take great pride in the ethical way in which we choose to run our business and we are delighted to receive accreditation from the Good Business Charter. We aim to prove that it is not just possible to run a successful company which chooses to do the right thing but that an ethical approach actually helps us to achieve our targets and continued success”
