We are very proud to announce we are now a certified B Corp! We join a global community of organisations measuring and improving our social and environmental impact in every aspect of our work.
B Corps balance purpose with profit. As a B Corp, we are legally required to consider our impact on our team, our clients, our suppliers, our community, and the environment. We join a community of leaders, driving a global movement of people using businesses as a force for good. For us, becoming a B Corp felt like the natural next step for us as an organisation, building on our move last year to formally becoming a social enterprise.
In the words of PPL’s Vish Valivety: “As an organisation that exists to promote better health, wellbeing and economic outcomes across the UK PPL has always focused on making a positive impact, not just for our clients but for our staff and our community. That’s why we have already made the change to becoming formally a social enterprise as part of Social Enterprise UK. Being a B Corp is just an extension of that desire. It’s a way for us not just to share our values but to ingrain them in our structure, our processes, and our culture. Through the accreditation process, we’ve had to truly reflect on whether we were doing enough and we’ve made changes to move ourselves towards that goal. I think that’s one of the most exciting things about becoming a B Corp – the fact that there is always so much more to do and so much more to learn. We’re really looking forward to that journey."
