Having first become members in 2017, we have watched the B Corp movement grow and grow. Our recertification recognises the hard work of our team, and the commitment of our clients as we partner with them to embed human rights into their business strategy. As a B Corp, we are recognised for our high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability but there is always more we can do.
Our recertification highlights include:
- A score of 26.9 out of 30 for our ‘Impact Business Model’. This reflects the positive outcomes we create through our social impact work with clients and the “transformational improvements made through our projects”.
- A 30% increase in our overall score
Areas that we are taking steps to improve include:
- Environmental management
- Civic engagement and giving and
- Diversity and inclusion
We are committed to continuing our impactful work with our clients, and directly as a company in the communities where we work. A recent example is with our Ukrainian friends in Frome. We also welcome B Lab’s work on evolving the standards for B Corp Certification and the positioning of human rights as a non-negotiable requirement. We have shared our feedback and look forward to seeing their progress.
