In August 2015, Twelve Winds Consulting proudly became a Certified B Corporation and a Founding Member of B Corporation in the United Kingdom because we believe that business should be a “force for good.”
We believe that success in business needs to be redefined in order to create a more resilient and sustainable economy. This belief that we can build a better business guides our interactions with each other, our clients and the community. We are proud to be a part of this growing business community and are diligently working to strengthen and support our economy, community and environment through our work.
Certified B Corporations are a new type of company which use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. There are over 1,000 Certified B Corporations internationally across 121 different industries and 38 countries with nearly $3 Billion (collectively) in revenue. B Corporations are a diverse community with one unifying goal: to redefine success in business.
B Corp status is awarded by the US-based non-profit B Lab, which assesses a company’s impact on its employees, suppliers, community and the environment. Unlike traditional businesses, B Corps:
- Meet comprehensive and transparent social and environmental performance standards
- Meet higher legal accountability standards
- Meet the highest standards for employees and the community
“Twelve Winds was founded on the principle that companies are inextricably linked to the communities in which they operate. It just makes good business sense to behave as responsible and valuable citizens in those communities. Being a B Corp helps us live up to our values, and serve as an example for our clients.”
B Corporations compete not just to be the best in the world, but to be the best for the world. As a result of our collective success, individuals and communities will enjoy greater economic opportunity, society will address its most challenging environmental problems, and more people will find fulfillment by bringing their whole selves to work.
We are thrilled to be a founding B Corporation in the UK, part of an inspiring global community of ethical and socially responsible businesses that seek a better way to do business. We are excited about encouraging more passionate and like-minded companies to join this growing movement.
