This story begins with a small organisation and a bold ambition: to harness business in the UK as a force for good.

Led by forward-thinking optimists across a range of business sectors, our heroes are the ever-growing community of Certified B Corporations in the UK, taking their place within a global movement advocating for economic systems change.

In addition to their commitment to achieving the highest standards of social and environmental performance, their stories are of response and resilience – of meeting the challenges of the climate and ecological emergency, racial injustice and the most disruptive and dangerous pandemic for generations.


Meet the heroes of our story, the B Corp community

What is a B Corp?

Certified B Corporations (B Corps for short) are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency and legal accountability.

How do B Corps measure impact?

In the face of these threats and upheavals, it is clearer than ever that we cannot return to business as usual.

To bring about real and lasting change we must create an inclusive, equitable and regenerative economic system that works for all.

B Corps are the building blocks of this new system, creating a solid foundation of positive impact and proving that the model of stakeholder governance works for all of us.

Now the legal responsibility of all businesses should be to protect all stakeholders – workers, customers, suppliers, community and the environment – and not just shareholders.

As B Lab UK advocates for legislative change to make this happen, we want to celebrate and thank our B Corps in the UK. These companies – their leaders and employees – have powered our story of growth as we enter the next chapter of turning ambition into possibilities.
