We have a vision of thriving, vibrant cities, towns and villages, where small businesses play a vital role in their local communities, contributing to social, environmental, and economic sustainability, and setting an example of ethical and responsible business behaviour in the UK and across the world.
The National Organisation for Responsible Micro, Small and Medium-sized Businesses is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee and owned by its members.
Trading as the Organisation for Responsible Businesses, ORB offers membership and certification options to values-based organisations in the UK and Ireland that share our vision of a better way of doing business: a way that is good for business AND a better world.
A responsible way of operating that we believe is JUST GOOD BUSINESS.
Does that sound like your business philosophy?
Do you care about people and our fragile environment?
Do you believe that operating ethically and responsibly is Just Good Business?
We certainly do!
If this resonates with you, we are delighted because we believe that SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) are not only the powerhouse of the British economy but they also, collectively, have the power to make a real difference to our societies at local, national and even international levels.
But we need more businesses to change the way they operate: to consider people and their environmental impacts.
We need to shout louder about a better way of doing business.
We need to increase the responsible business movement.
There are significant business reasons to consider membership of ORB. You can find out more about those reasons by clicking here, but we genuinely hope the main reason you join is that you want to contribute to our purpose of driving the responsible business movement forward
Become a member of ORB and be part of that movement.
