Bates Wells honoured as a ‘Best for the World” B Corp

Bates Wells has been announced as a 2019 “Best for the World” B Corp, in the category of governance. Out of 2,917 certified B Corp companies spread across 64 countries, we scored in the top 10% for our governance practices.

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.
