Virtuopo has been awarded Good Business Charter (GBC) accreditation in recognition of the company’s responsible business practices. Joining organisations such as Deloitte, Legal & General, Unilever and Richer Sounds, Virtuopo was awarded GBC status after meeting strict criteria across 10 key areas.
The GBC was created by the Good Business Foundation in 2020 to encourage responsible business behaviour and acknowledge those who demonstrate a commitment to employee wellbeing, paying a real living wage, protecting the environment and treating customers and suppliers fairly.
Speaking on joining the GBC, Virtuopo Founder, Chris Holmes, said: “Virtuopo is built on strong values and we’re incredibly proud to achieve Good Business Charter accreditation, which provides reassurance of our responsible business practices to anyone who chooses to work with us, as well as those who work for us.
“The charter is an independent seal of approval, which recognises the high standards we have in place when it comes to the wellbeing of our team, the way we treat clients and suppliers and our commitment to protecting the environment. All businesses have a responsibility to make a positive impact and it’s never been more important to do the right thing for the good of people and the planet, whether you’re a global brand or a small operator.”
Jenny Herrera, CEO of The Good Business Foundation, said: “Virtuopo is one of the businesses leading the way in the livestreaming and virtual events sector in terms of sustainability and we’re thrilled to see the company join the Good Business Charter.
“Demonstrating a commitment to acting responsibly and having a shared passion for good business behaviour is something all our members have in common. By highlighting Virtuopo’s recent accreditation, we aim to encourage more organisations to sign up to the charter as we continue to raise the bar on business behaviour.”
Virtuopo’s GBC accreditation follows the announcement of a sustainability partnership with local community organisation, Love Wavertree, which sees the company fund a wide range of initiatives to help improve opportunities and make the area a better place to live and work.
