Blueprint is not a faith led initiative but it is faith enabled.  Some of the thinking (the provenance) which underpins the Blueprint Framework and Principles is drawn from faith teachings, in particular Catholic Social Thought.

One concept that resonates in particular with business people of faith is that of a “divided life“ – leaving the best of the personal values and morals formed outside the workplace at the door when at work. One of the objectives of  Blueprint is to enable people to take their personal values to work with them….Uniting Corporate Purpose and Personal Values to Serve Society.

We believe the values in our Framework resonate with people of different faiths.  We formed our Interfaith group to test this and found support for them within their scriptures and texts.

The interfaith group had a series of meetings to discuss the application of faith values to business. We also held meetings to include prominent business people drawn from different faiths,  to discuss the application of the Blueprint thinking to business in practice.

We also believe the Framework resonates with those of no faith and met with the chief executive of Humanists UK to test this.
