Would you like your business to join the global community of certified B Corps?
University of Exeter's One Planet MBA team have paired up with B Lab UK to host an evening of conversations on the role of business in creating a more sustainable and inclusive economy.
Thursday 29th June, 17.30-19.30, University of Exeter Business School
"Impact Conversations: University of Exeter hosts B Corps" - is designed to inspire businesses, individuals, consultants, advisors, as well as entrepreneurs with the concept of profit with purpose companies. There will be a discussion about the B Corp movement and the process of certifying as a B Corp to join a fast growing global movement of companies using business as a force for good. Two B Corps will present their business to the audience.
We'd recommend this event to:
- Businesses interested in profit with purpose
- Local authorities that seek to support businesses in the South West
- Academics and students interested in how to incorporate profit with purpose into your curriculum
- Consultants interested in how you can support purposeful businesses
- anyone interested in finding out more about sustainable business
What is the B Corp movement?
The UK B Corp movement is a growing community of for profit businesses who are using the power of entrepreneurship to tackle social and environmental issues. B Corps are certified to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. There are now 139 certified B COrps in the UK and 2167 across the globe. Together they form a powerful showcase of how to use business as a force for good.
Sign up is here: we'd be delighted to see companies from the area at the event, and help build a local community of B Corps in the South West area.
