B Corp Support

Let’s avoid a box ticking approach. Use the B Impact Assessment to help your business improve and get certified. Win-win.

“Society’s most challenging problems cannot be solved by government and non-profits alone. By harnessing the power of business, B Corps use profits and growth as a means to a greater end: positive impact for their employees, communities, and the environment. The B Corp community works toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of more high quality jobs with dignity and purpose.”

If you want to become part of a global community that believes business can be a force for good, then you’re in the right place.

The combination of third-party validation, public transparency, and legal accountability help certified B Corps build trust and value.

But where do you start?

Does any of this sound familiar?

  • You believe that business should exist for more than just profit

  • You’ve started completing the B Impact Assessment but you’re scoring below the required 80 points

  • You’re prepared to make the necessary changes within your business but aren’t sure how to move forward

  • You have some operational procedures in place but you’re not sure if these fulfil the B Corp requirements

  • You’re committed to balancing purpose and profit but limited time means this keeps getting pushed down your “to do” list

  • You want clarity on quick wins that will boost your score

  • You want an approach that takes into account business goals and aspirations

Together, we’ll build a tailored action plan to get you certified.

1) THE BIA

A first pass at the B Impact Assessment is the best place to start. We’ll work together so you’re comfortable using the online tool and are on the right track before we start to build you up to 80 points.

2) BASELINE SCORE

Getting a clear understanding of your baseline score is essential. This helps us to understand whether we’re starting the journey to 80 points from 30 or 60. While both starting point are perfectly valid, it’s important to set expectations around the timings and amount of work that will be involved.

3) ROADMAP TO 80

Once we’re clear on your baseline score we can start to build your roadmap to achieving 80 points, starting with quick and low cost wins.

4) B CORP ACTION PLAN

Together we will create a tailored, comprehensive action plan which will set out your journey to B Corp certification, including timelines and resources required.

5) ADDITIONAL GUIDANCE

Where appropriate, I will provide you with additional tools to assist you in writing procedures or calculating your carbon emissions, for example.

6) ROLL OUT YOUR ACTION PLAN

If you’d like support to roll out your action plan, I am more than happy to help. The B Corp journey can vary quite a lot for different companies based on size and complexity. By completing this initial phase of the process, however, it gives everyone involved much more clarity on the time and resources that will be required.

 

Nancy made completing the BIA a much easier and simpler process than I could have imagined. I had attempted the BIA initially on my own but needed an expert to guide and help me further understand exactly what was being asked of the me and the business and what additional tools and services needed to be adapted and implemented to improve and streamline the customer experience. Not only did Nancy help me successfully complete the BIA but Nancy’s guidance helped deeper my understanding of my own business and create simpler processes for myself and my clients. Nancy was always approachable and helpful too. I would highly recommend working with True Horizon.
