Beyond the Quarter’s mission is to create a world where business serves humanity. We help leaders build companies that are human, profitable and sustainable. So our very reason for existing is to positively contribute.
In addition, in 2021 we undertook 2 initiatives which align with our core purpose and work of making business better.
\- We donated 2% of all revenue to TreeSisters: women seeding change in order to support their work with complementary initiatives of reforestation, and female leadership. “We fund a diverse portfolio of tropical reforestation projects that are ethical, community-led, expand natural forest cover and aim to avoid further deforestation. Our projects support local communities and improve livelihoods, protect critically endangered species, and focus on gender parity and the participation of women.”
\- We made interest-free microloans to female entrepreneurs in developing countries with the tax savings we make from our donations through Lendwithcare.
Delighted with the outcome last year. 5031 trees planted, 7 female entrepreneurs funded (not fully by us – we were just one of many people and organisations who contributed).
Done purely based on income. Meaning it is only by working with our wonderful customers and supporting them on their journeys that we can fund these projects.
So if you worked with us in 2021 – THANK YOU for making this possible, for placing your trust in us, and for the many laughs we’ve had together along the way. Even if over Zoom!
And if you didn’t, but want to be part of the journey, get in touch.
Today's economy and environment is full of uncertainty and opportunity. Are you confident in you and your leadership team's ability to build and control your business going into 2023? We're looking for a group of 5 CEOs (10 to 100 employees) to join us on this workshop to talk through how to make your strategy, purpose and values happen. Join us.
