Social enterprise

UHUK is accredited as a genuine social enterprise – the Social Enterprise Mark is an independent guarantee that we put the interests of people & planet above shareholder gain. We have been externally assessed against sector-agreed criteria and have proved our commitment to using profits and income to create benefits for society and the environment.

We are part of a diverse international network of accredited social enterprises, which have been assessed as meeting a robust and credible standard for social enterprise, upheld by an independent Certification Panel.

Social enterprises are trading businesses that reinvest income and profits to address social and environmental issues, above that of shareholder profit motivations. Through social enterprise, businesses like ours can operate with a positive impact on the world we live in.

Each of our members is either a social enterprise company (though not necessarily a Mark holder) or a not-for-profit organisation.
