We're driven by our mission & purpose

Purpose and profit

Purpose and mission is critical to us. And that's not just us saying it. In November 2020, we changed our company articles to reflect what we believe in writing. This has meant that from then, whenever we make a decision, we have a legal obligation to not only take into account the interests of our shareholders, but also all stakeholders: including the environment and society.

Purpose is built into who we are

We believe that saying and doing the right thing are very different. When we were co-founded by The Big Issue we set out to do things differently, not just talk about it. We put in place measures to make sure that we're held accountable for what we do and to focus our whole business around our purpose.

Walking the talk

In 2021, we made a legally binding commitment to our articles of association. It put into writing that we exist to serve our whole Community, not just our shareholders.

"We built our mission and culture into the business from the beginning. This mindset of thinking about wider stakeholders including the environment and society when making key business decisions is really important to us. So important that we made it more than just words, it's in action."

Abigail Sater, CEO of The Big Exchange

Our co-founder

We are co-founded by The Big Issue, whose mission is to dismantle poverty by creating opportunity through self-help, social trading and business solutions.

The Big Exchange is not part of the same company as The Big Issue. They are the largest shareholder and as a co-founder, they are a key influence on The Big Exchange. Any success of ours will be beneficial to them as it would be to all our shareholders.
