Membership Rates

ORB membership rates are extremely reasonable, including a special rate for new businesses. We believe these rates should not prohibit any business becoming an #ORBmember if they meet the criterion and there is a genuine desire to be part of the movement for a better way of doing business.

For the purpose of membership, the number of employees relates to full-time employees. Part-time employees should be counted pro-rata

To become a Member of the Organisation for Responsible Businesses you first need to register your details and take our Responsible Business Questionnaire. If you pass to the required standard and accept the Responsible Business Pledge, you can then apply for membership. One of the ORB team will then contact you to find out more about your business and, importantly, explain how you can maximise the benefits of membership. If your membership is accepted, a GoCardless annual or quarterly direct debit will be set up, as per the published rates, to complete the membership process.

ORB membership is designed for SMEs (small and medium sized enterprises from a sole proprietor up to 249 employees.)

Larger organisations are invited to apply to our Corporate Supporters Scheme. Contact us for more information. (You will still be required to take the Questionnaire and accept the pledge.)
