TechForGood has officially launched its operations in the UK to help businesses achieve their environmental, social and governance ambitions and support charities aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.  

Based in Calderdale, West Yorkshire, the certified B Corp company supplies technology products and solutions to businesses and donates half of the net profits made from purchases to the buyer’s chosen cause. 

TechForGood has already received its first major orders with a UK challenger bank with certified B Corp status.

TechForGood has partnered with small and medium-sized third sector organisations including Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice in Huddersfield, climate charity Hope For The Future and The Big Issue street newspaper. 

As well as providing financial support, TechForGood offers cost effective IT support to nonprofits to help them get the best value for money from their technology. 

The company has also implemented a first-of-its-kind Carbon Offset Plan, committing to offsetting the carbon footprint of every product they sell before point of sale.

Kevan Heesom, UK CEO and co-founder of TechForGood, said: “TechForGood is embarking on a mission to revolutionise how businesses integrate ESG values into their core operations.

“Our successful model in Australia has shown us the immense potential of leveraging technology for good. With the UK’s vibrant landscape for social enterprise and a government-backed challenge aiming to embed ESG into corporate purchasing, we’re here to transform how companies achieve their sustainability goals.”

Leading UK corporates have committed to spend £1bn with social enterprises under the Buy Social Corporate Challenge. They have reached £350m since 2016.

The government-backed challenge helps large businesses to engage with innovative suppliers and embed ESG into their core operations and helps social enterprises to grow their revenues and impact by tapping into corporate purchasing power. 

Heesom added: “The era of business for profit alone is fading. Today, success is measured by the positive impact we can deliver. TechForGood stands ready to support any business committed to genuine ESG principles, proving that ethical business practices and corporate success can go hand in hand.”

TechForGood’s other third sector partners are education charity Lyra, gender equality charity The Fawcett Society, sanitation charity Lifewater UK, Centre for Sustainable Energy, skills development charity Dallaglio Rugby Works, Digital Poverty Alliance, climate charity Hope for the Future and anti-trafficking charity Ella’s.
