Responsible business in the 21st Century is more than the bottom line, to be sustainable and attractive to an investor’s businesses and other enterprises now need to consider ecological, ethical and social aspects as part of their business and operating model.
In the UK and around the world support and encouragement of entrepreneurship, small businesses and social enterprises is crucial for medium term economic health. Such enterprises now face the same scrutiny around their responsibilities to people and our planet as their larger organisational counterparts.
We aim to develop an understanding and importance of the impact on society of community and social enterprises. Our critical role is supporting groups and individuals to develop entrepreneurship attributes and skills and help them on the journey to being empowered to take judged risks and fulfil their potential and aspirations.
