Being a B Corp Business

What it means to be a B Corp business

Being a B Corp is about being a different type of business.

Certified B Corps are companies that hold themselves to the highest standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.

Whether a B Corp company is big or small, they aim to make a positive impact and are committed to being better businesses.

B Corps balance profit and purpose and consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment.

They are committed to managing and improving their practices, driving the shift towards a more socially and environmentally responsible business mindset and becoming a force for good.

my story

I decided a long time ago that I wanted to be a B Corp.

I have always been interested in health, fitness and the environment but the desire to learn more and do more was fuelled when I became a mum. Why? The reason was simple – I wanted to help ensure that the planet was not destroyed for my children and future generations.

I wanted to learn more about what we should and could do in our daily lives and in our home to help improve our health and the environment too. I changed a lot! I also ran events about food and was part of a local food group.

When I set up my own company, I had the chance to take my own company through the B Corp Certification process. I love the fact that the B Corp approach is a holistic one focusing on all business stakeholders including its workers, its customers and the community as well as the environment.

Also, the B Corp community is an amazing one. The people are so supportive and inspirational, and all have the common desire to make the world a better place.

Having completed my B Corp assessment, I knew that I wanted to help other businesses become a force for good and so I trained as a B Leader with B Corp. Now I can help and support purpose-led businesses become B Corp certified organisations and become a force for good.
