What is a B Corp?

March is B Corp Month, but what is a B Corp and why should businesses be interested?

Huge global brands and very small SME’s alike are becoming B Corps. Companies like Ben & Jerry’s, Jamie Oliver, Danone, Guardian Media Group, The Body Shop, Tea Pigs, Abel & Cole, Innocent drinks and so many more recognise their companies exist to have a positive impact on society, communities and the environment as well as making a profit.

Grant Hayward, Co-Chair of the Oxfordshire+ B Local, one of the first to be established in the UK, will be asking Kate Sandle, Director of Programmes and Engagement at B Corp UK, to explain more about B Corps, why businesses should consider becoming certified and what we can expect during B Corp Month. They will be joined by Helen Denny, Global Head of Customer Experience at The Myers Briggs Company, based here in Oxfordshire. The Myers Briggs Company became a B Corp in 2018 and Helen will share insights about why the business did this and the difference it has made.
