Better Business Act with B Corp
At Pukka Herbs we know that business can be a force for good. We have a responsibility to do what’s right for the people we connect with and for our planet, and it’s essential to remember that when making decisions. That’s why we’re a B Corp. It’s also why we’re supporting the Better Business Act: because we believe that businesses can do better for our society and ecosystems in the UK.
Scientists state that we have until 2030 to avoid the catastrophic effects of climate change which would lead to “rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society”. Mother nature needs us to act. Now.
2020 showed us how interconnected we are. We’ve seen and felt first-hand how the actions of others can impact us. It also taught us that when people come together, united by a shared goal of caring for each other, that we can achieve what was previously thought of as impossible.
We need to come together now to do what is right for human health and mother nature. The actions and decisions of businesses make deep and lasting impacts. It’s time for how we do business in the UK to change. It is crucial that a business should be held accountable for its impact on the natural world and for protecting people. Business should be more than just prioritising profit. That’s why, alongside other B Corps (businesses as a force for good) we are calling on the government for all companies to be required by law to balance the needs of people, planet and profit. Together we are asking to amend Section 172 of the Companies Act so that all businesses consider all their stakeholders rather than simply prioritising profit. Help us to make the change.
