Would you like to use business as a force for good and join the growing local and global B Corp movement?

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.

Now is the time to assess your enterprise against a certification that measures a company’s entire social and environmental performance. From your supply chain and input materials to your charitable giving and employee benefits, the B Corp Certification proves your enterprise is meeting the highest standards of verified performance.

Register for this series of practical workshops which will introduce and guide you through the B Corp certification process – the B Impact Assessment and the five key areas;

  • Governance
  • Customers 
  • Environment
  • Community 
  • Workers.

Delivered as a collaboration between Low Carbon Devon, University of Plymouth and Greenheart Consulting, a full-service social and environmental impact consultancy dedicated to helping companies integrate regenerative thinking throughout their business model.

By the end of the programme you will understand the B Corp certification process, have gone through the B Impact Assessment and know what your next steps are on your journey to becoming B Corp certified.

"Going through the B Impact Assessment process has been extremely insightful and useful for us as an organisation highlighting what we are doing well and where we need to improve. I would definitely recommend it." Phil Hawthorne, Head of Design, Red Paddle Co and Low Carbon Devon internship host.

Workshops are open to Devon-based businesses – small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), from any sector / industry.

Targeted at SME leaders and staff who can practically implement change and have strategic oversight and decision-making within your enterprise, e.g. depending on the size of your SME this could be the owner / founder, Managing Director, CEO, COO, etc
