B CORP2022-05-04T14:19:11+00:00

We are delighted to have become a certified B Corp. Our most challenging problems cannot be solved by governments and charities alone. By harnessing the power of business, B Corps commit to positively affect all their stakeholders – all the people they interact with and the planet, of course. For our part, we have changed our company Articles of Association to verify that we commit to having a material positive impact on both society and the environment through our business and operations. This includes pledging 5% of our revenue every year to charitable causes, as well as a continuing commitment to helping people through education and pro bono work.

We are also committed to:

  • Helping as many people as possible in business and life skills.
  • Being socially and environmentally responsible in all we do and encouraging everyone we meet to do the same.
  • Continually coming up with ways to reduce our environmental and social impact.
