Conscious Communications achieves B Corp certification


Conscious Communications has been certified as a B Corporation (B Corp), joining a growing community of progressive companies reinventing business by pursuing purpose. The Cambridge-based PR and marketing agency has been certified by B Lab, the not-for-profit behind the B Corp movement, as having met rigorous social and environmental standards which align closely with its mission to be a force for good.

The B Corp certification addresses the entirety of a business’ operations and covers five key impact areas of Governance, Workers, Community, Environment and Customers. The certification process is rigorous, with applicants required to reach a benchmark score of over 80 while providing evidence of socially and environmentally responsible practices; Conscious Communications scored 101.2. To complete the certification, the company has legally embedded its commitment to purpose beyond profit in its company articles of association.

Zoë Scorer, Deputy Managing Director at Conscious Communications, commented: “Thinking first about the impact our work will have and second about the impact on our own bottom line has been at the core of our business operations since our inception, so this is a huge milestone in our company’s story. Going through the B Lab process has been lengthy and intense; it is a testament to our unwavering commitment to ethical and sustainable business practices that we have scored as highly as we have.

“From our supply chain to our office operations, we meticulously consider the social and environmental impact of everything we do. We actively seek out opportunities to support local communities, and champion diversity and inclusion. The B Corp accreditation is validation that our business has been, is and will continue to do well by doing good.”

Conscious Communications is now one of over 6,500 businesses globally which are certified as B Corps. The B Corp community in the UK, representing a broad cross section of industries and sizes, comprises over 1,300 companies and includes well-known brands such as The Guardian, innocent, Patagonia, The Body Shop and organic food pioneers Abel & Cole.

Chris Turner, Executive Director of B Lab UK, says: “We are delighted to welcome Conscious Communications to the B Corp community. This is a movement of companies which are committed to changing how businesses operate and believe businesses really can be forces for good. Welcoming Conscious Communications is an exciting moment because the company has an opportunity to lead the way within the public relations industry. Its commitment to doing business differently will be an inspiration to others and really help spread the idea that we can redefine success in business to be as much about people and planet as it is about profit.”
