I am really excited to have become a Pending B Corp, a community of business that believe in the power of business for good.
By harnessing the power of business, B Corps use profits and growth as a means to a greater end.
I want to support business owners to grow a business that they love. I am especially interested to work with businesses that are looking to make a positive impact in this world. I am very interested in helping businesses to grow by considering all the different stakeholders – suppliers, employees, clients, customers and investors.
To enable business owners like you to grow a business you love through strategic business advice, marketing expertise and connections. So that you can focus on making an impact without wasting resources in the wrong places.
There are 2788 Certified B Corps globally at the time of writing this in 64 countries. And they all have 1 unified goal.
In the UK there are over 160 B Corps, with over 9000 employees.
Companies like Pukka, Ella’s Kitchen and The Big Issue and many smaller businesses like mine. All with a shared goal – to use business as a force for good.
I am starting out on this journey.
I have a lot to learn from those that are already immersed in this movement and have their full certification.
I am looking forward to that.
Certified B Corporations are a new kind of business that balance purpose and profit.
They are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment. In doing so I had to change our articles of association in line with this requirement, which took a bit of time and hassle but is hopefully worth it. I’m very grateful to the team at Mischon de Reya for helping me do so.
