Good Business Charter Accredited
Audax is delighted to announce it has successfully achieved re-accreditation 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.
The Good Business Charter exists for all companies, across all industries and sectors, 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.
Being part of the charter provides a clear message to the world that we are committed to responsible operations. To achieve the Good Business Charter, we meet and exceed their criteria in 10 components.
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 Good Business Charter has the support of both the CBI and the TUC which both have trustee representation on its board and other partners of the GBC include the Living Wage Foundation.
Managing Director of Audax Adam Liardet, said: “As Audax® were worldwide Pioneers in Body Worn Video (BWV) technology, we are also proud to be one of the first businesses that adopted the Good Business Charter some 4 years ago.
Providing award winning products is one thing, but having recognition for how we conduct ourselves as a business is of particular importance to Audax. Every responsible organisation should aspire to reach the highest possible standards in the way they conduct themselves. Being able to publicly prove and advertise a commitment to achieving and supporting the 10 components that make up The Good Business Charter we hope encourages and inspires other businesses to follow suit”.
