Social enterprise

How we work


Working within a social enterprise business model, we believe in three core approaches:

Firstly, doing business with integrity. Any business can choose to work in a way that brings positive benefits to the society they live and work in. Businesses makes choices every day. Whether to pay extra for a sustainable product and whether to support women or minority groups in the workplace. How we work matters. We work with integrity.

Secondly, using profits for social good. Profits can be used to drive positive social change and to have a positive and substantive impact on the world. We choose to engage in pro bono work and invest a percentage of profits into charities or ethical investments.

Thirdly, engaging ethically. Businesses can hold themselves to ethical standards, whilst learning from, and considering the value of, business approaches. Humanitarian Advisory Group is B Corp certified. We hold ourselves accountable to meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability.
