I recently attended my first B Corp event as a proud employee of a Certified B Corporation.
The event was celebrating x1,000 B Corps in the UK. The UK is B Corp’s fastest growing community making up a sixth of the global movement. In 2019 there were 400 B Corps and then the 500 mark was passed in 2020, and here we are two years on already at 1,000+.
The significance of the moment was marked in the impressive setting of The Natural History Museum under the iconic female Blue Whale named ‘Hope’ as a symbol of humanity’s power to shape a sustainable future. It was a powerful reminder of the challenges we face and the role of business as a force for good - doing no harm and doing more good, working together for a future that benefits people and planet.
This milestone and the nature of the setting made me reflect on Emperor’s reasons for aspiring to join the global B Corp community:
