It's all about sharing...

Your sustainable marketplace and supply chain register

Encouraging local activity with a global impact

Powered by UK businesses, centralising and sharing regional resources

Business made easy

How do we operate and grow our businesses in a modern world whilst simultaneously becoming sustainably responsible? It might be easier for large corporations who can plant whole forests or fill a roof with solar panels, but how do every day businesses and their communities contribute to climate change?

At GB Shared, we don’t believe life and business should be difficult, so we developed a solution to make it easier for everyone. County by county, we've been sharing, and across the UK businesses are sharing to drive change for a better future. Sharing offers you a local, ethical and sustainable way of doing business, from the comfort of your own desk, with a direct impact on your business, your region and the planet!

Our unique sharing platform offers a central point for each UK county, empowering business and communities to drive change at local and global level, whilst benefiting themselves in the process. Sharing can help to stimulate economies, reduce carbon outputs, embed social values and keep more money and opportunities in our own regions.

Thousands of businesses have already ‘pinned their colours to their county mast’ and started sharing; jobs, events, spend, discounts, funding, advice, support and wider opportunities, on the UK’s first sustainable marketplace, and you can get involved too.

Whether you opt into our talent pools, or sign up for local job alerts, use us to find local products, services, suppliers, training or discounts in your area, every click helps a local business, and you can help to keep it all in your area. Our national youth platform is free to all, and powered only by our member businesses, sharing with, and leaving a legacy for, future generations. If you're 16-24, check it out and sign up for free.

With tracked and measured returns, shared opportunities, brand visibility, rewards and recognition, we give businesses every reason to join us, start sharing and keep sharing.

Become a responsible business today.

Business with impact

Our marketplaces are free to access, you can use them to find a job, a local supplier, funding, events and when you do, every click supports a local business.

With tonnes of other great benefits like connections, tender alerts, bid support and sector groups, we give businesses every reason to join us, and to keep sharing.

Sharing means local jobs go to local people, helping to reduce unemployment. Sharing funding and keeping spend local, stimulates economies, while connecting businesses creates local supply chains, in turn helping to reduce carbon outputs.

We track, measure, encourage and reward our businesses, so the more they share, the higher the returns for them, and the more positive the impact for the region and the planet.

The smarter way to do business

We all know we need to contribute toward climate change, and, with more public and private sector organisations choosing to procure more sustainably, we recognise many business will need help to stay up to date and competitive.

Our customer journey naturally encourages sustainable behaviour, tracking our members' contribution through their shared activity. When our marketplace recognises sustainable activity, members receive a notification, helping to educate them on their sustainable behaviour.

Recording sustainable activity and rewarding members with green points as they go, means we naturally move them toward our global sustainable accreditation, and a place in the UK's sustainable supply chain register, all the while. they are busy connecting, winning and improving their digital reach.
