The B Corp Series: Business for Good – Using B Corp principles to scale and grow your business
Whether you’re looking to become B Corp Accredited or simply wish to grow your business in a way that enables you to focus on doing better for people and the planet, as well as profit – this workshop is for you.
Following on from our Getting Started with B Corp seminar, The Building Society presents the first in a series of practical sessions that will unpick the B Corp assessment criteria in more detail and explore how they can be used to scale and grow your business.
From exploring best practice to identifying gaps in your own business, this working session will examine how the framework can support you not only in achieving accreditation but also to establish a roadmap for impactful and sustainable growth.
