Description

“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, COOK


A series of 5 workshops to become a certified B Corp, with B Leaders Adam Garfunkel & Shayla Meyer. Join us, starting 4 October.

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.


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.


After a succesful pilot programme, we're launching our second B Corp workshop series!

The details:

Five, three-hour workshops, each covering one area of the B Impact Assessment:

  1. Governance: 4 October

  2. Workers: 18 October

  3. Community: 1 November

  4. Environment: 15 November

  5. Customers: 29 November

In each workshop you will:

  • Develop a deeper understanding about the workshop topic (ie, Governance)

  • Engage with the topic in a unique way

  • Receive guidance from Junxion and peer-to-peer support

  • Complete the relevant section of the B Impact Assessment for your company

  • Leave with a roadmap to improve your performance and assessment score, this roadmap forms the basis for your 1-to-1 working sessions, between workshops (see next)

Between each workshop you’ll have a one-hour 1-to-1 working session (telephone or in-person) with a Junxion consultant to:

  • Scope sustainable programmes, policies and procedures relevant to YOUR organisation that will improve your performance and assessment score

  • Complete any outstanding questions you left from the previous workshop

  • Prepare for next workshop

You can bring a colleague who is a specialist in one area along to the relevant session. If you have to miss a session, you can send someone in your place!

We are offering only 10 spaces in this workshop series to ensure we are able to work intimately with each participant throughout the entire series.

FAQs:

Does the fee to Junxion involve all the costs of certifying?

No, there is an annual certification fee payable to B Lab, the charity that runs B Corp. This allows you to use the B Corp badge and gives you access to lots of great support from the community. The amount you pay depends on your revenue. Up to £149,999 in revenue costs £500 a year. More about that here: http://bcorporation.uk/become-a-b-corp/how-to-become-a-b-corp/make-it-official-uk

What do I need to bring?
