Environmental issues have moved to the forefront of many aspects of everyday life. In the UK alone, 76% of households want businesses to become legally responsible for the impact which they have on the planet.
The Better Business Act seeks to lobby the UK government to amend Section 172 of the Companies Act. The aim is to harness the immense potential of entrepreneurs, innovators and enterprises to tackle the pressing issues of climate emergency and social inequality. Businesses will be held legally responsible for driving profits at the expense of workers, customers, communities and the environment.
