ABOUT US

We’re making a Better Century, where improved use and sharing of resources creates an environment where all life thrives. To do this, we’ve empowered a global community of change-makers.

By establishing ourselves as a Community Interest Company, we live our values. We are obliged to serve our community over the interests of our shareholders. A purpose beyond profit is embedded in our constitution. 

Any dividends we declare must not exceed 35% of our distributable profits, the rest, by law, must go to charity or community initiatives.

In 2020 we will list all community referred products and services in a dedicated area on our website. It will act as a trust site for products and services that can help create a Better Century.

This list will draw from mentions, recommendations and referrals.  It will link back to those discussions, allowing consumers to make educated choices, and ask questions. If a supplier is doing a great job, they will be rewarded by being listed. If not, our community will help them improve.

Our goal is to help everyone live in balance with the world. We’re to become the go-to place for making positive choices. By tracking purchases through digital wizardry, we will get paid for helping people. In turn, charities and community projects will be funded, and the virtuous cycle continues.

  • We have faith in the shared nature of humanity

There is a sameness in our desire to tackle the climate and ecological crisis, and the most valuable asset in achieving that is us, the people.

  • Without our community, we are nothing

Participatory governance and decision-making at the lowest practical level are practiced.

  • It is only through open dialogue that we arrive at the truth

Information flow is encouraged and not controlled by any one individual or group. 

  • We work collaboratively to lower barriers to entry

We are inclusive so everyone can get access to the right information.

  • It is each person’s right to be who they are

To make up their minds about things and take responsibility for their behaviour.

  • Operate consent-based decision-making.

As opposed to voting (the tyranny of the majority) or consensus (the tyranny of the minority).

  • We balance needs

Short-term and long-term: the contributions and needs of all our community (the individual and the collective), central and local. 

  • Regenerative culture

We work to ensure the health and diversity of individuals, communities, institutions, customs, and other life forms.

We operate the highest standards of privacy. We secure your data, preserve your anonymity, protect your privacy, and give you control.  

Our policies give you ownership: rights of anything that you share on Better Century. When you delete content or your account, your content is removed. The deal is that you are helping the community achieve its goal, but you are in control over how that happens.
