Dear <<First Name>>

2015 is shaping up to be yet another jam-packed, exciting year for Responsible 100 and we would like you to be part of it.

In 2014, we achieved a great deal. We improved our business tool, ranking system and company mentoring services. This year, we will spread the message about the benefits of openness and honesty in business more widely. As momentum grows, we are planning to raise investment by crowdfunding for a fully-fledged marketing campaign to drive a rapid expansion. We know increasing numbers of both businesses and consumers wish to see responsibility and profitability go hand in hand, and that through Responsible 100 we will bring them together to make that a reality.

Hosting a debate with UK Business Secretary Rt Hon Dr Vince Cable MP, Aviva's Dr Steve Waygood and Professor David Grayson on the meaning of responsible capitalism at Good Deals 2014 was one of the year's high points. The debate highlighted how public and political thinking is moving rapidly towards the need for businesses to make it clear what they stand for, to act responsibly - and to demonstrate they are acting responsibly.

Working together

Responsible 100 works with some of the UK's largest businesses including Legal & General, BAE Systems, KPMG and Nationwide Building Society, and some of the best loved SMEs and consumer brands, such as Pukka Herbs, Neal's Yard Remedies and Kyocera UK, to help them in achieving their goals in being both responsible and profitable. We also collaborate with many of the UK's foremost NGOs, government bodies, campaign groups and academics.

Together, we are delving into a wide range of responsibility issues affecting both business and wider society. Last year, our roundtable meetings covered issues ranging from taxation to whistleblowing, human trafficking, corporate governance, internet neutrality and community groups and causes. In a safe, collegiate environment we work to identify what constitutes acceptable, better and best policy and practice, with tremendous input from the civil society organisations in our network, such as ActionAid, Christian Aid, Anti-Slavery International, Tax Justice Network, ShareAction, The Work Foundation, Privacy International, and many others.

Join us

By working together, we can bridge the gap between the most responsible practices and the most profitable ones. And in so doing, provide further impetus to the growing social movement demanding that business truly serves people and planet. If you would like to work with us or simply find out more about our 2015 roundtable events, please register your interest by responding to this email or using any of the contact details below.

Best wishes,
