Cllr John Sweeney, Portfolio Holder for Business and Leisure:
“We are very proud to be the first London Council to commit to becoming a fairer, more responsible and ethical employer. Kingston Council became an accredited London Living Wage Employer by the Living Wage Foundation in 2019. Signing up to the Good Business Charter demonstrates our commitment to ethical and good quality ways of doing business, with suppliers, residents, partners and staff.
Together with the Kingston business community we can lead by example. We encourage all local firms large and small to sign up and proudly wear their ‘good business’ credentials. Businesses that sign up can tag us at @BusinessRBK so we can help spread the word and encourage even more businesses to join the Good Business Charter in Kingston.”
