Purpose Beyond Profit

Commerciality is critical, though, we find it more helpful to think of profit as an enabler.

Purposeful commerce goes beyond moral obligation; inspiring new innovations and markets; gets ahead of regulation; secures supply chains; builds trust, loyalty; and creates stories worth yelling about.

The climate crisis is our greatest existential threat, though its complexity and uncertainty present intangible outcomes.

Though, you’ll notice no mention of distant goals here. We enable meaningful change, realised in the near future.

We encourage a pragmatic human-centered approach, energising tangible impact that wins stakeholder trust, motivates employees, and firmly aligns to long-term goals.

Our ‘4 Purposeful Ps’

We devised ‘4 Purposeful Ps’ to highlight our rationale for Purpose Beyond Profit.


Profit enables companies, shareholders, and employees to thrive, by providing the financial means of fulfilling human needs, whether those of shareholders, employees, or society at large.

Customer needs are also fulfiled through product function and innovation; which must be funded by healthy commercials

When identifying purpose, we take an honest and open approach to profit as an enabler, without which our other 3 Ps would not be possible.


The nature of business shapes the nature of our wider environment.

Profit always comes at a cost to the world we live in, though, without robust ESG data, it is often hard to appreciate scale, whether generated by Scope 1 (internal), Scope 2 (indirect energy), or Scope 3 (partner) emissions; via the impact of our products and services on public health, or the ecosystems it depends on.

Critically, major societal challenges, such as global heating also pose very real economic challenges to supply chains. Preservation, is therefore, both a moral duty, and vital in mitigating strategic risk.


Work consumes c.60% of our waking hours, Monday-Friday, and so, it’s no wonder people want to feel they are working for more than making ends meet. Surveys show employees value purpose beyond profit, as a means of fulfiling their own values and sense of identity. As people are the most important asset of any company, purposeful work pays dividends in employee happiness, motivation, wellbeing, and retention.

Secondly, our products and services target People, each of whom carry values and beliefs at the core of their world-view. To capture hearts and minds, our brands must extend beyond functional benefits.


From electric cars, to bamboo toothbrushes, low carbon products present a major re-think in how we conduct business, and approach market with strategies that limit envioronmental harm .

All product categories have the opportunity to utilise purpose as a platform for innovation, unlocking new markets, and meaningful differentiation.

Potential also extends to the possibility of ‘net positive’ business, where we go beyond notions such as ‘net zero’ to deliver societal benefits greater than the sum of a business’ external costs.
