Clarity Joins Better Business Act Coalition

We have joined a coalition of over 650 like-minded companies calling for a legislative solution that ensures balancing the needs of people, profit and planet is at the heart of each business.

The Better Business Act is a campaign driven by leaders who recognise the law has fallen behind business culture. The aim of the coalition is to rally business around a request for government to amend section 172 of The Companies Act. This will ensure that company directors are responsible for advancing the interests of shareholders alongside those of wider society and the environment.

Hundreds of businesses have already signed up to create a cleaner, greener, fairer future for all. Together, we will ask for the government’s leadership to help deliver this new contract between business and society.

Why have we joined?

The Better Business Act is a business-led campaign, 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. The COVID-19 pandemic, the climate emergency and social inequality are profound and pressing problems that can only be solved if we harness the potential of entrepreneurs, innovation and enterprise. The world needs every business at its best — creating good jobs, helping to fix pressing problems and adding value to society.

"The Better Business Act campaign aligns strongly with our own purpose at Clarity to make business good."

David Honcoop, Managing Director and Founder

David Honcoop, Founder and Managing Director of Clarity Environmental, said: “The Better Business Act aligns strongly with our own purpose to make business good and our efforts to provide solutions that are greener, more sustainable and more responsible.

“The coalition is a unique opportunity to demonstrate UK leadership on the global stage – creating a competitive advantage, driving innovation, embracing the green recovery and aligning with the government’s ambition to build back better. We look forward to supporting the campaign over the months ahead and urge the businesses we work with who share our values, to consider joining us.”
