How Do Companies Act Stakeholder Meeting – March 9th

About this event:

This is meeting is for How do Companies Act stakeholders and all interested SVUK members to come together alongside campaign leaders to discuss how we re-establish the way forward for value led decision making in legal frameworks.

The meeting will take place via Zoom on Wednesday 9th March, 1:00 – 2:00pm.

History of the campaign:

The How Do Companies Act group is a coalition of organisations and individuals working together to reform the legal framework for businesses in the UK. The ultimate goal is re-writing sections of the Companies Act but also to work collaboratively on other areas of legislation and regulation that can ‘hardwire’ social and environmental impacts into business decision making through better governance, accounting, and reporting.

The group started in 2019 as a campaign to change the basis of financial accounting (to include social and environmental impacts). The scope was soon widened to include regulating the business environment more broadly and a wider campaign to provide a more ethical business landscape. In the light of COVID-19 our online meetings are bi-weekly as we see the need for greater collaboration to help amplify our individual efforts and help shape policy long term but also in the immediate recovery from COVID-19.

We’re running out of time. This campaign is aiming high because we have no other option. Time is running out, we’re in health, environmental, and a social crisis, and action is needed now. We don’t have the time to slowly push for change, we must demand it, and demand it happens now.

We hope to see many of you there, to discuss this further!
