Thomson Reuters: Luke Fletcher interviewed on B Corps and the future of sustainable business

Luke Fletcher, Partner in our CHaSE team, has spoken with Thomson Reuters regarding B Corp status, sustainable business and the number of organisations looking into whether to certify as a B Corp.

Speaking to Sarah Shearman, Social Enterprise Correspondent at Thomson Reuters, Luke explained how the B Corp certification process is a robust benchmark which distinguishes between those companies who merely talk about making a positive impact, and those who demonstrate their commitment with deeds rather than just words.

In his remarks to Sarah, Luke is quoted as saying that the requirements which come with being a B Corp are crucial in helping to separate companies that are “willing to talk a good game from those who are willing to put their money where their mouth is”.

This article goes on to cover how the B Corp movement is growing rapidly, and how an increasing number of organisations are exploring whether to embrace B Corp status in order to put purpose before profit.
