Zen believe that business should be a force for good, and that businesses like theirs should set the example. That’s why their ultimate purpose is not to provide a return to shareholders but to deliver happiness to their people, their customers and their suppliers. They refuse to be constrained by short term financial targets but to always strive for long term goals aligned to these happiness objectives, and their desire to positively impact people and the planet. That path leads to happiness for all. Part of this pursuit means holding themselves to high standards, which is why they have become Carbon Neutral Plus and a part of the B Corp movement. Ensuring their responsibilities to society and the environment are formally set out in their business objectives – embedded in their DNA – is all part of Zen’s commitment to creating a more sustainable future. Connectivity – the lifeblood of Zen – transforms the way they learn, work and play.

It is Zen’s mission to empower customers to expand their worlds, using their connectivity to make positive change.
