Pro Bono Australia’s Good Business initiative brings together the willingness of businesses to address social issues with community organisations that are already at the frontline.

Pro Bono Australia is dedicated to supporting the global movement that is shifting business away from profit-driven objectives towards operating as integrated social citizens.

Through Good Business we aim to:

  • Educate businesses about the value and process of implementing social responsibility strategies into their business model.
  • Provide news and information on all aspects of CSR/Shared Value and community engagement from an Australian perspective whilst drawing on global research and best practice examples.
  • Allow member companies to profile their strategies, share their sustainability reports, discuss their community involvement and share their learnings.


B Corporations represent an emerging group of companies that are using the power of business to create a positive impact on the world and generate a shared and durable prosperity for all.

Certified B Corporations have undertaken the B Impact Assessment, scored over 80, and have signed a term sheet that declares that they will consider all stakeholders. It is a rigorous assessment that explores a company’s governance, transparency, environmental and social impact. B Corps voluntarily hold themselves to a higher level of accountability in these areas.

Pro Bono Australia has been a proud BCorporation since 2013. We believe B Corps redefine success in business by competing not to be the best in the world, but to be the best for the world.

Good Business encourages the positive change that Australian businesses can have on society, it allows organisations to share the good work they do and the impact they have to a socially engaged audience.

Because of the symmetry of values, we are proud to have Australian BCorps included as members of our Good Business community.

By continuing to communicate the good work businesses can do, we believe that together, we can empower a better world.
