30 UK management consulting firms certified as B Corporations

22 September 2020 Consultancy.uk

The number of management consulting firms in the UK that have been admitted into the B Corp community has hit 30. The certification is aimed at promoting sustainability and purpose in the business community.

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. Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose.

So far, over 3,500 businesses around the world have become certified as B Corps. The B Corp certification addresses the entirety of a business’ operations and covers five key impact areas of Governance, Workers, Community, Environment and Customers. To complete the certification, the company legally embeds the commitment to purpose beyond profit in the articles of association.

30 UK management consulting firms certified as B Corporations

In the UK, the B Corp community stands at around 360 companies, and includes well-known brands such as The Guardian, innocent, Patagonia, The Body Shop, and organic food pioneers Abel & Cole. 30 of the UK’s B Corps are management consulting firms – with smaller and boutiques being the only firms to take up the scheme so far.
