The B Corp Movement

B Corp: Join The Movement

The first step on your B Corp journey. Championing businesses that are a force for good.

B Corps are leading the shift in the systemic change to make businesses a force for good. The UK has become the fastest growing B corp community in the world, with over 1,300 UK B Corps in a community of over 6,000 companies globally.

B Corporations are verified by B Lab, as companies which meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. In order to become certified, companies have to complete and achieve at least 80 in the B Impact Assessment (BIA), alongside legal requirements.
