Australian Circular Economy Hub; June 21, 2023
Social enterprise Good360 recently launched the Good360 Inner Circle program with support from the Australian Retailers Association (ARA) in response to the rising costs of living and to speed up Australia’s transition to a circular economy.
Good360 is a charity that collects and donates unsold or surplus goods to people in need, providing social benefits and ensuring excess goods and services from the business sector do not go to waste. The Good360 Inner Circle program aims to build upon this work by supporting, encouraging and rewarding those retailers, manufacturers and wholesalers that demonstrate strong sustainability and social commitments as a way of doing business.
Businesses partnering with the Good360 Inner Circle program will need to exhibit their sustainability and social commitments through their operations and participate regularly in activities such as donating pre-consumer excess goods and services as well as providing support to the program as a whole through funding, volunteer staff and expertise and helping to amplify the movement towards zero waste and community impact.
In return, businesses will receive regular data and impact reporting covering their environmental and social contributions and will also be awarded a Good360 Inner Circle badge that publicly recognises their commitment and contribution towards environmental sustainability and social impact goals.
