Press Release

We’ve joined the Better Business Act coalition

May 18, 2021

Our company joined the Better Business Act coalition because we believe the world needs every business at its best – creating good jobs, helping to fix pressing problems and adding value to society. This aligns with our company’s stated mission and values.

The Sustainable Wedding Alliance is joining 1000+ businesses calling for a straightforward legislative solution: the Better Business Act will amend section 172 of The Companies Act to ensure that company directors are responsible for advancing the interests of shareholders alongside those of wider society and the environment.

Our company is encouraged by the fact that 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.

We believe that the Better Business Act is a unique opportunity to demonstrate UK leadership on the global stage – creating a competitive advantage, driving innovation, accelerating progress to net zero, and aligning with the government’s ambition to build back better.
