Ownership of chemical company Scott Bader is unusual. Since 1963 it has been wholly owned by a charitable trust, the Scott Bader Commonwealth. Employees are expected to become members of the Commonwealth and as such have responsibility for ensuring the company is sustainable for the benefit of future generations. Currently 77% of the firm's 630-strong workforce is a member of the Commonwealth.
