Local businesses have teamed up to celebrate ethical achievements and encourage improvement in corporate citizenship.
The Jersey Good Business Charter is a new charity aiming to showcase Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), and how business can be a force for good.
CSR covers the work businesses do to make an impact on the community in which they are based, taking into account their environmental impact and the way they engage with their community, customers, suppliers and their staff.
The charity will be headed by a Board of Governors led by Brendan McMahon, who was until recently Managing Partner for PwC Channel Islands. Other governors include Dr Gunther Thumann, Chairman of Jersey Finance Limited, and Anne Marie Vibert MD of Royal Bank of Canada in the Channel Islands. The Board will also be advised by Dr Eve Poole, a Professor of Business Ethics and Leadership.
Mr McMahon said: “The Jersey Good Business Charter will play an important role in continuing to position the Jersey business sector as a world leading example of an ethical corporate environment that contributes meaningfully to building a better world.”
“We hope that Charter will help to demonstrate the enormous contribution being made to Jersey by many of the Island’s businesses, as well as challenging the sector as a whole to raise the bar.”
The charity will be launched at the 'Business Is Good' conference at the Royal Yacht on 13 November.
