Mission-led business review: response

By | Update | No Comments

Blueprint for Better Business has submitted its response to the Cabinet Offices mission-led business review: call for evidence.

The Cabinet initiated the review because; “The traditional roles of civil society and business are changing for the better. The social sector is becoming more business-like and businesses are keen to demonstrate their social impact.”

Blueprint drew on its experience of working to support and challenge businesses to be clear about what their purpose is, respect the dignity of people, and serve the common good.
