His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales gave the ‘Mayday’ distress signal to businesses in 2007, asking them to take action to tackle climate change. The resultant Prince's Mayday Network was developed by BITC and grew to encompass over 4,000 companies of all sizes.
In the years that followed, the issues being addressed with Mayday companies expanded rapidly. In order to better address the broad spectrum of issues around marketplace sustainability, BITC has created a new marketplace sustainability offer which we are developing with our members.
In the present day our ambition around marketplace sustainability is for every company to prosper by offering products and services that makes a known and proportional contribution to creating high quality and sustainable lifestyles for all the people its business model touches. Initially we are working with BITC member companies to help them to work towards there goals, but we hope to eventually offer more detailed support to the wider network once again.
Being part of the Mayday Network now means that your business receives the latest sustainability news first through our Mayday Newsletter.
