We are delighted to announce that Bidfood have signed up to join a very important coalition of like-minded businesses committed to a fairer, cleaner, greener future for all. The Better Business Act coalition is about transforming the way we do business so that every single company in the UK, whether big or small, takes ownership of its social and environmental impact. Together, we’re taking a straightforward ask to government: to change Section 172 of the Companies Act to ensure that company directors are responsible for advancing the interests of shareholders alongside those of wider society and the environment.
The COVID crisis, the climate emergency and social inequality are profound and pressing problems that can only be solved if we harness the enormous potential of entrepreneurs, innovation and enterprise. We know that UK voters and consumers want business to do better, research shows that three-quarters of the public think business has a responsibility to protect the environment and the majority favour brands that do good in the world. In short, the world needs every business at its best – creating good jobs, helping to fix pressing problems and adding value to society.
This is why we have joined this campaign- the Better Business Act is business-led, driven by leaders who recognise that the law has fallen behind business culture and who have proven that this approach to business works for everyone.
Andrew Selley, CEO of Bidcorp UK confirmed: “We’re proud to be joining the Better Business Act coalition alongside some iconic leaders across the UK who share our passion and determination to create a cleaner, greener and fairer future for all. We believe that it’s crucial for every business to play its part in not only shaping our future, but protecting it too. We plan to work closely with the coalition to help it grow, through putting our people, and the planet, at the heart of our plans to deliver sustainable profits.”
