The B Corp community is a vibrant and fast-growing collection of businesses who believe that having a positive impact on people, society and the environment is as important as making a profit.
To become a B Corp, organisations need to undertake a rigorous assessment which looks at every aspect of their business – from their HR practices, supply chains and customers through to their environmental impact.
Ben & Jerry’s, Patagonia and Etsy are all proud B Corps. Jamie Oliver has recently announced that his business enterprises in the UK are soon to certify. Bates Wells is currently the only UK law firm to have achieved B Corp certification.
