B Corp consultancy

To respond to tomorrow’s generation, businesses need to future proof themselves by placing people and planet, not just profit at the heart of their decisions. All stakeholders should receive a shared value. PWC, Edie and Vogue Business have all published the study that B Corp businesses grow 28 times faster than national average – 14% as opposed to 0.5% per annum, showing that a regenerative, fair, and inclusive economy can also be profitable.

B Corp is a certification and framework for businesses to follow in their journey of becoming a force for good. Having undergone the certification, Useful Projects understands that understanding, answering, and making progress towards the 200+ questions can be an overwhelming process.

Full B Corp certification support:

Useful Projects’ B Leaders will work closely with your senior leadership team and relevant colleagues to provide you full support through your B Corp assessment. We help demystify questions in the Business Impact report, identify low hanging wins, and co-create an improvement plan, as well as guidance towards measuring progress throughout the journey.
