CMO for SkedGo
Where purpose meets profit
SkedGo’s journey first started when our founders went to a soccer game in suburban Sydney and noticed that the 40 players and audience members had travelled alone in their own vehicles. It was this realisation that sparked a commitment to find a better solution – one which would help to reduce single occupancy vehicles on roads and be accessible to everyone.
Over the years, providing equitable MaaS solutions has become increasingly profitable as society adapts to changing needs. There are now more mobility modes than ever, combined with an ageing population, and increased pressure to ensure rural communities don’t get left behind. With public purpose at our core, we’re proud to be playing a part in creating a more connected, sustainable, and inclusive transport system.
What is a Certified B Corp?
B LabTM has a lofty goal. The nonprofit network behind B Corp wants all businesses to meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency – and be a Force for GoodTM. What does the B stand for? ‘Benefit for All’. It’s a powerful reminder of the potential for every organisation to make a positive impact.
There are more than 7,000 companies in 93 countries and 161 industries that are part of this movement. We are delighted to stand together with these purpose-driven organisations, sharing a commitment to socially responsible business practices and good governance. The certification is especially important in the mobility sector to encourage more equitable and sustainable transport solutions.
Our B Corp journey
The B Corp Certification process was thorough. It required deep introspection and probed every facet of our business from governance and community to employee and client relationships. Was it worth it? Absolutely. We feel it’s made us a stronger business and reinforced our sense of purpose to deliver sustainable, inclusive and accessible mobility solutions.
B Corp keeps businesses accountable to the values that shape our shared future. It helped us ensure that our internal structures and workings are equally as conscious and responsible as the work we do with our clients and their communities. As a result, we’ve learnt a lot along the way to help us become an even better business. We couldn’t be more excited about the journey ahead!
