b corporation

B Corporations have committed to balancing purpose and profit and are assessed against a range of criteria through the B Impact Assessment.

  • Governance
  • Workers
  • Community
  • Environment
  • Customers
  • Disclosure

B Corp Certification is a powerful way to build credibility, trust, and value for your business.

Certifying as a B Corporation goes beyond a product or service certification. It is the only certification that measures a company’s entire social and environmental performance.

In order to become a certified B Corporation, a business must score 80 points across all categories assessed within the B Impact Assessment.

The B Corp Kickstarter is designed to take you through the B Impact Assessment and create an action plan for getting certified.

ISO 14001

ISO 14001 is an internationally agreed standard that helps organisations improve their environmental performance.

The benefits of an ISO 14001 certified Environmental Management System (EMS) include:

  • Enhanced company reputation
  • Increased engagement across the business between senior management and employees
  • Improved environmental performance
  • More efficient use of resources and reduction of waste linked to cost savings
  • Improved compliance with environmental legislation

I offer as much or as little support as you require, starting with an initial gap analysis through to the final certification audit. I believe that an effective Environmental Management System should align with an organisation’s existing procedures and processes rather than creating an additional administrative burden and will work with you to create a streamlined approach to achieving this.

Nancy was responsible for the the rollout of ISO 14001 accreditation across 15 of our offices, dispersed throughout EMEA. In this role she interfaced professionally with stakeholders at all levels of both our own internal business and external supply chain. Nancy was a pleasure to work with and I have no hesitation in commending her work.
