About The Jersey Good Business Charter

The Jersey Good Business Charter is a new initiative that highlights, celebrates and encourages the contribution of Businesses in Jersey to building a better community and a better world.

The Charter is a standard of excellent business practice for companies with a substantial presence in the island of Jersey. We operate independent of government and as a not-for-profit entity, drawing expertise on an honourary basis from the business community. 

The Charter is governed by a Board, who are advised by a Council, and supported by an Administrator.

The Charter Mark is then awarded by our Board to those Affiliate Member businesses that can demonstrate against a series of standards that they are serious about an approach to business ethics and corporate social responsibility that focuses on the impact of business on its people, supply chain, community, future generations and the planet.
