Responsible 100 from Profit Through Ethics

Responsible 100 is not another way of doing CSR or a new sustainability survey. It’s an exciting idea and a growing community to help business balance its pursuit of profit with the interests of society.
Responsible 100 support any business intent on decreasing their negative impacts on society and the environment while increasing their positive impacts. Responsible 100 is for businesses that are fully committed to adopting the best responsibility practices, right across their organisation, to the best of their ability.
Responsible 100 is a management tool, a business ranking, a public internet platform, an identification mark and a growing social movement. It simultaneously:
- enables businesses to balance their pursuit of profit with the interests of society; and
- empowers people – consumers, employees, neighbours, suppliers – to identify and support such businesses.
Businesses are mentored through a simple process. They respond to up to 43 questions which address various responsibility issues. The questions have been developed in collaboration with leading NGOs and campaign groups including ActionAid, Christian Aid and Tax Justice Network. Answers are objectively assessed and scored. Businesses which choose to publish their information for public scrutiny do so via this internet platform which will develop to promote stakeholder dialogue, empathy and collaboration.
If this sounds like your company – irrespective of its size, sector or starting point – please get in touch. We have worked hard to make it possible for any company to be able to join and help grow the movement by developing two different fee options.
