This article is an introduction into AGC BTR’s journey towards achieving B Corp certification and our experience so far in working towards more sustainable goals.
It details an overview of what B Corp means and the changes we’re making to try and achieve this. We also look into the positive impact B Corp can have on our clients and the wider BTR community.
B Corp Certification is a designation that a business is meeting high standards of verified performance, accountability, and transparency on factors from supply-chain practices and input materials to employee benefits and charitable giving.
The accreditation was introduced in 2006 and has been steadily growing ever since with more than 4,600 Certified B Corporations worldwide.
Designed as a way of redefining businesses as a force for good, B Corp companies are working towards positively impacting the global economy by encouraging a more inclusive, equitable and regenerative system, assessed against a set of social and environmental standards set out by B Lab.
The focus is on people, planet and profit.
