Exploring B Corp certification

Today, over 8,000 businesses around the world including 2,540 companies in the UK have achieved certified B Corps status*, ranging from well-known brands such as The Guardian, innocent, Patagonia, The Body Shop, and organic food pioneers Abel & Cole, to start-ups and small businesses. 

In the UK consulting industry, 466* consulting firms are now listed as B Corps, mostly consisting of smaller and boutique consultancies, leaving the larger consultancies in their wake. 

At The Consultancy Growth Network, B Corp certification has certainly been one of THE hot topics of the year for our 300+ members. We have provided dedicated B Corp forums and roundtables, with contributions from B Corp certified Network members Sladen Consulting, Rise Beyond, Optimo and Butterfly Data providing their insight to empower others to embark on B Corp journeys of their own.
