It’s official. It’s happened, and we’re pretty bloomin’ proud. You read the headline right, we’re now a B Corp certified business.
If you haven’t already heard, B Corp UK is an independent verification that credits businesses that are meeting high standards of social and environmental performance. AKA businesses that value society and sustainability, working in the most ethical way possible.
Netting a score of 114.3 – considered outstanding in B Corp terms – we’re proud to be part of the fast-growing movement of like-minded B Corp companies that believe in doing business responsibly.
Doing right by the world and making a conscious, positive impact has long been in our DNA, from the campaigns we run, to the suppliers we work with and the sustainable materials we use to package everything up.
And now, we’re honoured to have industry-leading recognition, meeting B Corp UK’s high standards of social and environmental practice, transparency and accountability.
It’s no mean feat and the process is rightly rigorous. But as a business we fully back, live and breathe the sentiment of B Corp, which is centred around using business as a force for good.
In fact, as the first PR agency to achieve both B Corp status and 100% employee-ownership (which we pioneered back in 2019), this natural evolution adds further proof that we genuinely put our people first.
But whilst our B Corp certification, and fab new wooden plaque are a welcome addition to our repertoire, that’s not the end of our sustainable journey. Far from it.
As a business that’s been around since the 1930s, we’ve always been firm believers in being in it for the long run. For us, this is just another step in playing an important role in doing the best for today, to ensure we leave a better tomorrow. That means continuing to hold ourselves to the highest standards of social and environmental practice, and always leading the way in the PR industry.
We’ll keep you posted on the ongoing journey.
R&T joins the other 1300+ B Corp UK registered business (20 of which are PR agencies).
