Right now all of the businesses featured on Goodsmiths are either social enterprises (both not-for-profit and for-profit), or B Corps.
The reason for each social enterprise’s existence is to tackle social problems, improve communities, provide people access to employment or skills development, or help the environment. At least 50% of profits go towards their cause. By also generating an income, these organisations don’t need to rely as heavily on grants or sponsorships. This means they are set up for more financial stability and can make a lasting impact. They’re here for a long time, and also a good time.
They’re here because not only do they sell something worth knowing about, they are also doing something truly inspiring with their profits.
Certified B Corporations are leaders of a global movement of people using business as a force for good. They meet the highest standards of overall social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability and aspire to use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. There are more than 2,300 Certified B Corporations in over 130 industries and 50 countries with 1 unifying goal – to redefine success in business.
We also know that when choosing places to shop, you are looking for quality. A delicious dinner, a thought-provoking class, a well-made jumper – these things are important too. So, every Good business on the Goodsmiths platform has also been chosen for their unique offering and the care with which it’s been created.
We’re in awe of these businesses and the positive impact they’re making, and we are delighted to be able to introduce you to them.
