Responsible business

Being a responsible business means aiming for the highest standards of ethical business practice with everyone you deal with, including employees, customers, and suppliers.

The Equality Pledge helps Welsh businesses take pro-active steps towards creating an inclusive, fair and diverse workplace.

Fairtrade Fortnight will be back from 9 September to 22 September 2024.

Are you talking about mental health at work?

Acting in an environmentally responsible way is a legal duty. Every business is responsible for complying with a range of environmental legislation to reduce the impact your business has on the environment.
The following offer practical guidance on how to make your business more sustainable:

We know that escalating costs are a major challenge for businesses and can have an impact on our mental health and wellbeing. Whether you are self-employed or a business owner, we should take steps to take care of our mental health and those of our employees.

More and more people are doing things to support their local community and they want to see that the businesses they deal with are equally involved and doing the same.

Remote Working

Never assume you know what equipment someone requires. We are all different and have differing access requirements. A “one size fits all” approach will not suit the employee.
Remote working can bring a lot of benefits to employers and employees alike, widening the pool for employees, reduced office costs, and bringing extra skills.
Violence against women, domestic abuse and sexual violence is extremely common, has devastating effects on survivors and their children, families and communities, and impacts workplaces.
Many Welsh businesses and workers have been benefiting from working from home for some-time now and not just as a result of the pandemic.
