The B Corp impact assessment is a valuable management tool to help your business improve its positive impact

What is B Corp certification?

The B Corp movement has seen significant growth in recent years, with the number of B Corps in the UK doubling to 2,000 in the 18 months to May 2024. This shows the appetite from companies to understand, measure and improve the impact they have on their stakeholders.
To become a certified B Corporation, companies have to complete the B Impact Assessment (BIA) and reach a target of 80 points. It is a challenging but rewarding process and helps businesses develop a framework to develop best practice across all aspects of their operations.

"Alexina at ActNow Consulting helped guide us through the B Corp application process, giving structured advice and simple, actionable insights. It was a really positive experience. As a business we have benefitted immensely from guidance in areas of our business we wouldn't have thought of. Alexina has the knowledge of the standard but also helped us through the legalities. Alexina is a trusted advisor, extremely knowledgeable as well as passionate about how the accreditation achieves positive impacts supporting our ESG goals and aspirations. I can highly recommend her."
