Sustainability education

Educating the masses on sustainable activity through free resources...

We all understand why sustainability is important, the challenge is knowing how we can help. The great news is, there’s so much you are probably already doing, or can start doing, to begin contributing to a sustainable future for us all.

By ‘sharing’ with everyone, we can all make a considerable impact.

GB Shared exists to make life and business easier, as well as leaving a positive impact at local and global level. Our unique partnership with CSR-A, a recognised global accreditor, means we can also share a plethora of sustainable resources and expertise with you to help your journey.

Sustainable Marketplace

CSR Accreditation

GB Shared exist to help make your life a little easier and, in an ideal world, encourages local activity, with a global impact.

Our marketplaces are uniquely designed to share, creating equality when it comes to accessing local information or opportunities, they’re totally free to use, you only join and pay to ‘share’ and access member benefits.

Those benefits include the ability to do business virtually, locally, ethically and sustainably and the more you use us, the more opportunities and rewards you earn, and the more sustainable you become. Your membership will naturally identify, educate and reward your sustainable behaviours, capturing your sustainable activity and moving you a step closer to our optional, sustainable accreditation.

This means you can focus on helping yourself, whilst we do the rest, all your activity and green rewards are on your dashboard!

Recognising the sustainable impact of our platforms and membership, we partnered with CSR-A in 2022. We wanted to both educate and reward members on their existing sustainable activity.

CSR-A are perfectly positioned as our sustainable partner. They offer a globally recognised sustainable accreditation, are time, quality and cost-effective, moreover, they love the ethos of sharing and how it can help businesses to become naturally more sustainable.

We carefully mapped their accreditation to our customer journey, to capture and evidence your activity, uniquely blending business with sustainable behaviour.

Today, our platforms identify, capture and reward your sustainable behaviour, moving you toward accreditation and a place in the UK’s sustainable supply chain register.

What are the benefits of accreditation?

CSR Accreditation will...
Demonstrate ESG compliance
Identify relevant UN SDG's
Level up your tendering power
Recruit and retain talent
Manage and mitigate risk
Protect and enhance your brand

Breaking it down for you...

The CSR-A global sustainable accreditation framework looks at your organisations’ sustainable activity via a structure of 4 unique pillars:

  • Workplace
  • Environment
  • Community
  • Philanthropy

Share membership will encourage and identify sustainable activity that you do, which matches those activities that CSR-A capture, and count as sustainable activity during accreditation. The free resources across these pages, will help you capture wider evidence of your sustainable activity.

Each pillar is broken down with an interactive crib sheet, to help you get started, capturing activity you’re already doing and more importantly, the right activity, in the right place, helping you to understand where you need to improve.
