Partner With Us

Responsible 100 has enjoyed the support of hundreds of partner organisations over many years. People and organisations with genuine expertise on the issues we explore, and who share our passion for honing business as a force for good, have made incredible contributions and shown what real collaboration can achieve. We’re currently establishing new partnerships and inviting previous supporters to join us again.

Benefits of Partnership

The benefits of partnership with Responsible 100 include: 

  • DEMONSTRATING LEADERSHIP AND AMBITION. Responsible 100 operates at the cutting edge of business responsibility. Our aims and methods are unique. We offer unrivalled opportunities for partners committed to doing worthwhile work in ESG, CSR, impact and purpose
  • SHAPING THE BENCHMARKS. We categorise business performance on all the issues we explore as either POOR, OKAY, GOOD or EXCELLENT. Partners help develop and improve benchmarks working collaboratively. Our benchmarks constitute valuable resources. They help companies better understand how they perform now and where they can improve, and they inform policy.  
  • IMAGINING EXCELLENT – and how to achieve it. A unique opportunity in working on the benchmarks is to imagine and propose what is possible. Partners share responsibility for imagining tangible standards of EXCELLENT performance that companies could and should be striving for, issue by issue, and inspire and support them in achieving it.
  • GROWING YOUR KNOWLEDGE. Our model, and the relationships we broker between clients and partners, provide a continuous stream of new data and value.
  • GROWING YOUR NETWORK AND INFLUENCE. We provide continuous networking opportunities with like-minded individuals and organisations. By partnering with Responsible 100, experts can help drive positive change and contribute to a more sustainable future for businesses and communities alike.

Educating and Inspiring Action

Albert Einstein apparently suggested that if you can’t explain something to a six year old, then you don’t fully understand it yourself. We encourage a similar approach when introducing and exploring the responsibility issues we explore to businesses of all sizes and sectors. We assume no prior knowledge. 

Our aim is to make it as easy as possible for businesses to reveal how they respond to a wide range of social, environmental and ethical challenges, to benefit themselves, and everyone else. The information we uncover includes the business’s awareness, knowledge and interest in an issue. We assess their exposure to risks and opportunities alike, and what they have done in the past, and what they might usefully do next.

Partners share responsibility for the creation and ongoing development of our methods of sharing and serving knowledge and expertise, and collecting further policy and practice examples from our participating businesses.

Previous Partners

Over many years, we’ve worked with a wide range of campaigners and civil society organisations to explore responsibility issues, shape benchmarks and try to understand business responses and performance.
