Description


"Junxion helped me understand the value of B Corps and becoming a Certified B Corps is something I will recommend to my clients who are serious about brand purpose." - Simon Murphy, brand consultant, DYMAD


A free introduction to B Corp Certification with B Leaders Adam Garfunkel & Shayla Meyer

What is a B Corp? Why has Forbes magazine called it a business trend to watch? How can my company benefit from getting certified? Join us on 7 September to find out.

Responsible business is good business. Customers are demanding more sustainable products & services and businesses want to deal with more responsible suppliers... give people what they want.

B Corp is the only holistic certification for ‘good business’, showing the world you run a company that uses business as a force for good.

B Corp moves CSR from the side room to the board room.

“When we were small and struggling to grow our business, staying true to the values of the B Corp movement made the difference between us surviving and not.” – James Perry, co-founder and Director, COOK


What can B Corp certification do for your business?

  • attract new business

  • attract investment

  • attract talented people

  • engage employees around a purpose-driven business

  • identify and mitigate risks in your supply chain

  • save money through more efficient operations

  • join a rapidly growing network of businesses with whom you can share, learn and work together (big guns like Ben & Jerry's, Patagonia and Ella’s Kitchen are in on it too)

The assessment is tailored to your business by sector and size. It asks you 180-odd great questions to help you place sustainable thinking at the heart of everything you do. And when you pass the assessment, you’ll have a roadmap for how to move forward.

Please come to Impact Hub King’s Cross on September 7, 2017, from 9:30 to 11am for a ‘find out more' 90-minute session.
